And we’re back…! School racing returns to Haringey’s parks

round2 v31_75

Last Friday, the Haringey Schools Cycling League held its first outdoor race event since the easing of the pandemic lockdown.

Belmont Junior, Risley and Stroud Green primaries raced on a cyclo-cross course at Belmont Recreation Ground, as a part of a mini post-lockdown series.

And it was close: Belmont and Stroud Green were evenly matched, with either one taking first or second spots in most of the afternoon’s races. Risley, who fielded the smallest team, dominated in the Boys 26″ B-Final. In the end, Belmont edged in front of Stroud Green by just one point. See the full scores and points-per-school.

Mini-series standings so far

The day also marked the first event since the League became an independent, British Cycling-affiliated club.

The league has also been running a series of indoor roller racing days at primary schools in Haringey. If you’d like us to come to your school, please contact us for details.

The league’s next event will be an MTB race on 25 June at Finsbury Park.
