The district Mountain Biking races took place over the last couple of weeks with Lakers School entering teams in all the competitions; Year 7 Boys, Year 8 Boys, Year 9 Boys and Year 10 Boys.
The race format involves 3 riders racing over 40 minutes to complete the most laps with a relay style changeover between riders every time they rotate. The result of each competition was based over two races held at two different schools deciding the winners and representatives at the School Games County finals later in the summer at Hartpury College. Last year Lakers were district and county champions at two age groups, so this year we had high hopes again for further success.
Year 7 Boys: Callum Jones, Finn Corbijin & Jack Harris – Finished 3rd out of 6.
Year 8 Boys: Todd Morris, Billy Jessop & Henry Winfield – Finished 2nd out of 6.
Year 9 Boys: Jack Howe, Charlie Revill & Rohan Parry – Finished 3rd out of 6.
Year 10 Boys: Jack Cook, Sam Cooper & Ben Andrews (Race 1) – Finished 2nd out of 6.
Year 10 Boys: Danny Gabaldoni, Tom Hedges & Sam Cooper (Race 2) – Finished 2nd out of 6.
Despite some great individual performances we just couldn’t manage the 1st place needed to be overall champions and therefore qualify for the County Finals. Well done to all the riders and let’s hope to go one further next year.
