WP XCO Champs and Eliminator race report

06 Jun 2018

Race Report by: Sipho Madolo, Sport Programme Manager

This past weekend the Bloemendal Wine Estate hosted the WP XCO Championships and Eliminator on the very same day - 3rd June.  We had 7 kids doing the XCO and 7 competing in the eliminator event. It was a busy day but the kids had so much fun which is what racing is all about. It was especially good to see some of our kids having a bad day on the XCO, persevering and turing their day around in the Eliminator race.

In the XCO, Bukho had a great race, racing his 3rd race as a junior, he rode confidently and gave it his all.  Our sprogs boys also had a great race and enjoyed their time out on the course. Unfortunately our sprog girls struggled a bit but they perserveered and it was really special to see them racing.  


On the eliminator side, we saw the girls turning things around and having a cracker race, Milani in particular managed to finish 2nd in the finals which was a fantastic result. Lakhanya also that a great race, making it all the way to the finals.  All the kids were very happy with how the racing went and I am looking forward to see them racing this coming weekend at THE WC SPUR SCHOOLS LEAGUE.

Thanks to the to Western Providence Cycling Association for making this possible for our kids and for putting on such a fantastic event, it's a pity that this was the last XCO of the year.
