Level 2 GoRide


On November 24th Heles School hosted this years School Games Level 2 GoRide event for years 5&6. It was a cold, wet and muddy day yet the children still had bundles of fun.

There were two races; the first one consisted of a time trial. In this race the children were set off one after another in 20 second intervals to find the fastest riders from each school. The second race was a derby between all the fastest riders out of the school.

Each rider completed one lap of the very muddy course and were seeded so that they could be sorted into their appropriate mass race order.

Each rider then had the chance to compete for team glory and of course those all so valuable team points.

All children rode well in challenging conditions. A special mention must go to Oliver Murphy who after an impressive time trial won the fastest boys race. Bickleigh came third overall and have qualified for the School Games Level 3 final, which will take place at Haldon Forest on the 23rd March 2016. Well done to all the riders involved!
