Northwood Wins Junior Eliminator Series 2015

Over the past three weekends, Northwood cyclists have been competing in the Junior Eliminator Series at venues across KZN. The format of the racing consists of heats ranging from 600m-1000m. The boys start in batches of four or five and sprint the course which is normally quite technically challenging. The first two riders to complete the course go through to the next round and the last two riders are eliminated from the competition. This is repeated until a final race of four riders compete for the top podium spot.

After the first two events, held at Northwood School and Giba Gorge, Northwood held a narrow lead over Maritzburg College and Thomas More. It all came down to the final race of the series where College had home ground advantage. After some extremely tough heats, with many of our boys making the semi-finals, Cayde Muldoon was the Northwood boy to watch as he progressed to the final of the u16 category. Lying in 3rd place for most of the final race he managed to out-sprint a Thomas More rider onto the swimming pool bridge and snatched a 2nd place at the end. Cayde Muldoon managed to finish the series off with 3rd place overall. Northwood as a team however managed to win the overall event for the second year in a row. Prizes consisted of R10 000 for custom cycling kit, a Rayne High Definition Lifestyle Camera as well as an awesome trophy. Well done to all boys who took part and pushed so hard throughout the series.

We look forward to welcoming over 200 school cyclists from around the province this weekend as Northwood hosts one of the Spur Schools Cross Country races. Good luck to all boys involved.
