Five schools took to the grass at Ducketts Common for round 4 of the 2015-16 League.
Teams from St. Aidan’s, Muswell Hill, Coleridge, Risley and North Harringay primaries took part in fourteen separate races in an afternoon that saw fierce competition and some tense battles for the finish line.
Each rider from the five schools had the opportunity to race twice, earning points for their school in the annual League competition.
North Harringay managed to extend its leading position in the League standings, with Coleridge taking second place in the day’s points.
Risley dominated in the Girls 24″ category, winning two of the three races. St. Aidan’s riders had a good day, taking several second and third places in all but one category.
The battle for League points continues when the teams meet for round 5 at Chestnuts Park on 27th May.
