Twenty-three riders competed in the first Go-Ride Race event promoted by Huddersfield Star Wheelers on Saturday 9th July at Newsome High School.
The event was Cyclo-Cross based and the riders all did a one lap time trial followed by a mass start race. Riders were initially split into Under 8s and Under 10s with some of the faster Under 8s being promoted into the faster group after the time trial to even out the groups.
All riders got some coaching before the racing to familiarise themselves with the course and its challenges, such as the dreaded sand pit!
There were some great races with the riders really enjoying themselves and getting stuck in. The results of both races were combined to get an overall result, in the event of a tie riders were separated by their time trial time. The top three in each category won a medal and certificate and all riders received a water bottle for their efforts.
Star Wheeler's next Go-Ride race is on Saturday August 6th at Newsome High School, Huddersfield, signing on starts from 2.30pm. Star Wheelers run Go-Ride coaching sessions every Saturday at Newsome 3pm till 4pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
