2015-16 League gets underway

The 2015-16 HSCL League competition opened last week with a cyclo-cross event in Finsbury Park.

North Harringay took the lead in the cyclo-cross event.

North Harringay, Risley Avenue and St. Aidan’s primary schools competed in afternoon sunshine on a course that was mercifully dry despite recent heavy rain.

28 riders took part in four races plus a relay, with North Harringay Primary coming top in the points table.

The afternoon saw some great racing, with all school teams showing determined riding on the challenging course. Riders needed good technique to negotiate the sharp bend before a particularly slippery uphill straight. There was fierce competition for first and second places, particularly in the Boys 24, Girls 24 and relay races.

The next event is a time trial in Finsbury Park on 5th February 2016.
