InterSchool Cycling continues to grow with two more schools joining the competition. Welcome to Epping Public School, and St Mark’s – Drummoyne. Tom is proving to be a valuable recruiter having introduced Prairievale, St Mark’s and not forgetting Eastwood with his own kids and Arnie. Great work Tom. -Thanks for the support.
Concord West Public School managed to place two riders in the top five spots in both the Jnr C and Jnr B Scratch events. Keira helped out taking eighth position in her first ISC Scratch event. Rab took 3rd in the Scratch event and managed to claim 7th in the senior handicap riding against kids twice his age.
Chris from Knox Grammar raced his first event at Lansdowne and impressed everyone when he slashed six seconds off the ISC course record in the Time Trial. His performance didn’t go unnoticed by the Jnr A riders in the Scratch race. They all lined up behind him and hung on for dear life. One by one, he blew the field apart, with only William and Caitlin remaining on his wheel by the last lap. Pure strength wasn’t enough at the finish as the experienced track riders were getting ready to pounce. In the last hundred metres William and Caitlin made their move to take first and second for Trinity and St Scholastica leaving Chris with third place for Knox Grammar. Chris’ efforts brought Knox within six points of the Secondary Competition leaders, Rosebank College. -I can’t wait to see Chris race again next week after a week of experience under his belt.
The strong growth wasn’t just with the Jnr A’s. The Jnr C field had eleven riders in the Scratch event and the group had to be split for a pee-wee hotdog circuit later in the afternoon.
