Thornes Park, on the 22nd September. Wakefield
Calder had representatives in the Under 8s, Under 10s, and the Under 12s categories. Utilising the skills and fitness they have developed from their weekly Thursday evening Go-Ride coaching sessions at St Thomas a Beckett School in Sandal conducted by coaches Tom Butler, Rob Hudson and Martin Price, they all managed the technical course without difficulty.
All the youngsters figured well in the final results with the highlight being Megan Hoylewho finished third in the girl’s U12 event; a fantastic result for her first ever race.
