Cycling Success for Newton Longville


A team of Year 6's (and one Year 4) headed over to Buckingham at the end of April to take part in the local British Cycling Federations competition at Buckingham School.


As part of the competition, the children were challenged with racing mountain bikes around a complex course of tight turns and steep descents, with the winners from each race progressing to the next stage.


With some fantastic cycling and racing skills, the team from Newton Longville won almost every race, earning enough points to win the team title in the overall competition, as well as earning 2nd place for the overall best male cyclist and 3rd place for the best overall female cyclist in the same competition.


Now because of their amazing effort, the team have earned themselves a place in the grand county finals which will be taking place later this term.


Well done cycling team.
