Despite the looming bad weather and many riders away competing at the Canberra Junior Tour, we still had good numbers in all three grades for Round 2 of the Interschool Cycling Competition.
Burwood Girls High started the round two points behind Knox Grammar who were on top of the table, but managed to move five points ahead by the end of the round and take the lead. The big difference was the PB factor, with Sophie taking another 3 seconds off her Individual Time Trial (ITT).
Trinity dropped down a few spots to Meriden, Sydney Secondary College and Rosebank in the Secondary Schools competition, while William was in Canberra. Lana, Zachary and Georgia took advantage of William’s absence and managed to each claim a PB in the ITT and take a number of places in the Junior A Scratch and Handicap races.
In the Primary Schools Cup, Eastwood Heights moved up a couple of spots when Arnie joined his team-mates for Round 2. St Peter Channel Catholic School suffered while Samantha and Sarah were away in Canberra but they are still in contention due to the fact that riders can effectively miss two whole rounds and still claim participation points.
Boronia Park managed to jump up a spot on the table after strong performances by Remi, with a PB in the ITT, second in the Junior B scratch race and fourth in the Junior A/B Handicap.
Russell Lea Infants’ managed to hang on to third place, largely due to PBs from both Kirby & Josef, and Josef’s win in the Junior C Scratch Race. Josef also managed to finish halfway through a large Junior B/C Handicap. -Hmmm, it looks like Josef might be heading for Junior B sometime soon.
Congratulations to the following riders who each notched up a PB in the ITT.
