Records tumble in time trial

New League records came and went in the time trial event at the Finsbury Park Athletics track last week.

Six schools competed in the annual time trial event.

Six schools competed against the clock in Round Two of the 2015-16 League.

Coleridge, Muswell Hill, North Harringay, Risley Avenue and St. Aidan’s were joined by newcomers Rokesley.

Despite a strong headwind on the return straight, the afternoon’s racing saw new records on the 400m track in both the boys and girls 26” categories.

North Harringay were the first to set the day’s tempo, achieving a new record time for the boys of 49.94” (beating last year’s time of 51.86”).

Celebrations were short lived, however, as Risley’s girls shaved off another half second to record 49.44” in their fastest lap of the circuit.

Coleridge notched up the third-fastest time in the girls category, while Muswell Hill, St. Aidan’s and Rokesely all had riders in the top 10.

Full details of riders’ times and points allocation are in the results page.
