Sainsbury's 2014 School Games - The Inter Regional Track Championships

From the 4th - 7th September, eight youth riders represented the region in the Inter Regional Track Championships, which were part of the Sainsbury's School Games in Manchester. Over 1600 athletes competed in 12 Olympic and Paralympic sports - the Track Cycling was contested over three packed days with the overall result being determined by the combined results for every event of the boys and girls competitions.

The racing was of an incredibly hiigh standard with many Games and National records tumbling as the standard of Youth Track Racing continues to improve year-on-year. The riders all performed very well with some exceptional individaul and team rides, resulting in an overall 10th position for the region. This is by far the best result that we have achieved in this competition and the future looks bright as many of the selected riders will be available for the competition next year.
