Primary Go Ride 2012 was a big success!

  The damp weather didn’t stop 24 young cyclists attending this year’s first Primary Go Ride event which was a huge success. With 3 primary schools attending and two places available in the Regional level 3 competition in Exeter, standards were high with each school determined to book their place.  

 

This Go Ride event challenges teams of four boys and four girls for year's 5 or 6 to complete a set course as quick as possible. The individual times were recorded and then each competitor was seeded into a competitive race against the other schools with a chance to earn points for there school. (1st = 6pts 2nd = 5pts 3rd = 4pts etc.). The course consisted of different challenges on difficult surfaces and at times each riders had to get off their bike and climb over obstacles. The course was around central park and the competitors had to adapt to ride on the wet grass and joining the tarmac path.  

 

Times were fast around the course with individual times all finishing within 6 minutes, this made the seeding for the next races difficult. With each competitor competing in a race against five other riders each earning points for their schools all were still in with a chance of winning the competition at the end of the seeded races. The final and deciding race was a relay where each competitor had complete one lap of the course but was up to the school in which order they raced. The race was worth double points and was influential in the final standings. The competition finished with Widewell eventual winners closely followed by Whitleigh as runners up and Woodford narrowly finishing 3rd. Well done to all who took part and a big thank you to all the leaders at Stoke Damerel Community College who marshaled around the very damp course.
