Our young cyclist Harriet Dodd has been off on her travels once again, this time representing the South Region at the Sainsbury’s School Games in Sheffield.
Over 200 cyclists from across the UK gathered with hundreds of athletes to compete in the Olympic style event, which also held the traditional opening and closing ceremonies.
Friday saw them compete in fast, short street sprints and crits, Saturday was the turn of individual and team time trials and Sunday was the turn of the road race (40km for girls and 60km for boys) in testing conditions of wind and rain.
Harriet performed well finishing 3rd in her sprint and 6th in the team time trial.
The South region were placed 11th overall, a great weekend’s racing by all.
