Nearly a month had passed since Round 6 of the Schools Cup was run. While some were travelling over the school holidays, others were practising at the Sunday Funday sessions before making their way down to Lansdowne for Round 7 in term three.
Three new riders joined us over the school holidays with Round 7 welcoming Ben, Jed and Ollie. They are representing Pacific Hills, West Pennant Hills and St Brendan’s respectively.
New Series Competitions
We’ve started our second new competition in as many rounds. You can read about the Most Valuable Rider competition in the Round 6 report. In Round 7 we introduced the Coaches Cup to recognise the contribution of coaches in cycling. The competition is not just for registered coaches -it is open to coaches, parents, teachers or anyone who is a positive influence to young cyclists.

Rider of the Week
Cyclology Riders of the Week:
Primary: Axel – Narwee Public School
Secondary: Peter – William Clarke College
Axel wasn’t feeling great to begin with, but with a little convincing he decided to give the TT a go. Little did he know, that he would take 10 seconds off his PB.
Peter started the season with a sub four minute TT. It was well and truly under his last season’s PB. This week he managed to take a further 9 seconds off. -Nine seconds is a pretty big deal at this speed.
Well done Peter and Axel.
