On Monday 10th June, four children from Year 5  went to Winchcombe Secondary School to take part in our first ever Mountain Biking competition. Eighteen teams from Cheltenham Schools competed against each other in mixed team relays. Each team member had to cycle twice around a circuit that had a mix of grass and tarmac surfaces. Bikes and helmets were provided by British Cycling. After the first races, we qualified for the County Final qualifying race for the fastest six teams. Despite each member giving everything they had, we finished outside of the top two qualifying places but did achieve a very creditable 4th overall. Travis received a sport value band for his ‘passion’ and Mark received a band for showing ‘respect’ to his team mates and fellow competitors. The children were simply a credit to Woodmancote School. They tell me they all had a great time!
