Yesterday our Go-Ride Cycling team represented Amber Valley in the Derbyshire School Games - County Finals in Sheffield, following their success in local races. They were competing against the best teams from across all nine districts of Derbyshire.
Firstly, competing in the Italian pursuit, Team Kilburn unleashed a sprint finish to take 1st place with just one second separating them from the second placed team.
Finally, it was down to the team relay, a race which Kilburn had only ever lost once in the last six years. Kilburn made a good start and quickly began to gain ground and overtake the leading riders. Soon, the team's determination would pay off, as they took the lead on lap 3 and began to open up a gap from the rest of the field. Kilburn crossed the line a whole 4 seconds ahead of the next team, meaning Kilburn were pronounced 'Go-Ride Cycling County Champions 2019!'
A huge well done to all of our Team and a special thank you to their parents for their support.
