The first race on grass of this year’s League was a cyclo-cross event on Ducketts Common.
Forty-three riders from five schools — including 12 first-time racers — braved the cold to compete on a flat but challenging course with plenty of turns.
North Harringay dominated the day, winning seven out of the 12 races (with Milo, Markian and Lyra taking each of their 26” rounds; Isac winning the first boys 24” race).
Impressive performances by newcomers South Harringay saw them win 3 races (Hattie and Lauren in the 26” category; Tula in 24”). Risley and St. Aidan’s took one race each (Billy in the boys 24”, Kacey in the girls 24”).
Rider of the week was South Harringay’s Hattie who, on her way to her second win of the day, crashed in the first lap. Unfazed, she remounted and battled her way from the back of the bunch to take fourth place on the line.
Finally, special thanks to Coleridge for competing despite only being able to field a team of four boys on the day.
The standings after Round 2 see North Harringay move to the top spot with 233 points:
Round 3 will be at Finsbury Park, on 2nd March.
