Cyclo-cross at Ducketts


Round 4 of the League saw six schools return to cyclo-cross racing on a twisty, technical course at a blustery Ducketts Common still recovering from the effects of Storm Gareth two days before.

This was just the second time that schools had raced on grass since the season opener in November. With North Harringay knocked off the top of the standings during the previous round, and Risley and South Harringay set to push them into third place, there was a lot to race for.

Chestnuts dominated the Girls 24, winning both heats and taking first and second places in the A final.

In the Boys 24, South Harringay took the first heat and the A final. Risley won the B final and the first heat of the Boys 26.

Stroud Green had a good day, winning the B finals in both the Girls 24 and 26 races. And St Mary’s — racing for the first time on grass — won the second heat in the Boys 24 and came second in the Boys 26 B final.

North Harringay saw a return to form, confidently winning all but one race in the Girls 26 and the A final in the Boys 26. They finished the day with a 16-point lead in the standings.

The next round will be on 10th May at Chestnuts Park.
