North Norfolk Cycling Championships

This was the first time we have entered this event for several years, so we were not sure what to expect. However, with the lure of a place in front of the peloton at the start of stage 7 of the Tour of Britain on offer, we were keen to do the school proud- and that is exactly what happened.

We entered a boys' and a girls' team. The teams were:

Logan Wilson
Emma Burton-Pye
Pearl Knapp-Taylor
Fiona-May Swanson

Dylan Shapcott
Joshua Revell
Freddie North
Thomas Massingham
Luca Scott

Each competitor entered three events: the slalom; the zigzag sprint; and the endurance relay. Everyone tried really hard and although we have not had the individual results yet, we think that Logan won the slalom and was second in the zigzag sprint. Dylan and Freddie did well in the endurance sprint; Dylan even stopped to help another boy who had come off his bike in a head to head for second place!

It was a great event. The girls came second overall and the boys came first. The boys will go on to the County Finals later in the term and everyone has secured a place for the Tour of Britain on Saturday 14th September.
