Year 9 student selected to race for the Central Region in the Sainsbury’s School Games

Exciting news for one of our Senior School Students, Riley in year 9. He has been selected to race for the “Central region” in the Sainsbury’s school games in September.
This is such an exciting opportunity, competition was tough, with 80+ riders and only 4 riders have been selected, Riley being the only U16.

Riley has been focusing on his track racing and as this is a road race this came as a nice surprise!

It is a national event with competitors from across the UK with an Olympics type format. It will be taking place at the London Olympic Park, date yet to be confirmed.

Riley has also qualified to race his 1st National track race in August at the Derby Velodrome so it will be a busy sporting summer holiday.


Well done Riley fantastic news.
