On Sunday the 10th of May at 9am our boys made their way up to Kearsney to participate in the first Inter School Eliminator Series. This consists of a short track of 800m -1km, raced by four riders at a time. The two riders who come first and second go through to the next round and the process repeats itself until a winner is declared. It was a first for our boys as they had never participated in an event like this in the past.
After a few heats had passed we had 4 boys making it into the final heats, with Ethan Biggar being represented in the u14 age group, Cayde Muldoon and Ben Carnie in the u16 age group and Caldon Petit in the u19 age group. After some fantastic racing we ended up with four medals, two gold and two silver. The results are a reflection of the commitment the boys have been giving to early morning training sessions this year.
In addition to the medals, the boys also won over R4000 worth of prizes.
U14- Ethan Biggar 2nd.
u16-Cayde Muldoon 1st, Ben Carnie 2nd, Matthew Loder 6th and Suvel Kumkaren 8th.
U19- Caldon Petit 1st.
