September 08, 2014 at 8:53 AM
Our College cyclists produced outstanding results in the New Zealand Individual Cycling Championships held in Auckland this weekend.
The first of the three events was the Individual Time Trial (ITT) at Point England. In the U14 Boys category, Dylan McCullough gain gold and broke the course record with Callum Walsh in second place. The gold and silver record was repeated in the Hill Climb up Mount Wellington. In the Criterium at East Tamaki, however, the two swapped places with Callum claiming gold and Dylan the silver. General Classification saw Dylan first and Callum second, overall.
Liam Cappel rode well in the U16 Boys category to gain bronze in the Criterium.
In the U17 Girls, Maddie Park won both the ITT and the Criterium and gained bronze in the Hill Climb, to take the overall gold in the General Classification. Lizzie Mudford also rode well to gain silver in the Criterium.
A rare feat was achieved in the U17 Boys with James Fouche winning all three events and beating the record in the ITT by 8 seconds. In the Criterium, James rode off the front of the field in spectacular fashion and finished 35 seconds ahead of the second placed rider. Connor Brown, in the same grade, gained a second in the ITT and third in the Criterium. James was first on General Classification and Connor second.
Head Boy, Sam Dakin won the Senior Boys Criterium with a fantastic sprint finish to conclude the two day event and showcase Saint Kentigern riders in their most successful Individual Nationals ever.
Well done to all these cyclists. They now look forward to competing in the national team event during the holidays.
