In the morning the Under 16 time trial competition we had Isabella Wotjescka, Shaquille Eusebe, Aminur Islam and Tyrell Greaves. They all had to ride 4 laps of the circuit in Crystal palace park and did really well putting us in a strong position at lunchtime.

In the afternoon for the first time there was an under 12s time trial. First up for Hackney Frank Ramsay took a wrong turn and his time was discounted - luckily the organisers let him into a later slot. He was followed by Molly Lloyd who set one of the fastest 2 lap time for the girls. Sam Bardill  followed Molly and set a faster time that put him in the top three, Frank went again and set a better time than Sam, then last rider for Hackney Kai Watts went faster still. It was hotting up and the over heated crowd awaited the final races of the day a boys U16 crit' and a girls U16 crit. Representing Hackney were Ned O'Regan and Jessie Feeney in the six lap races, with them both trying their bests against the other thirty boroughs. Ned finished 16th and Jessie 12th.  Once the judges were ready the organsiers gave out the medals with the silver team medal for U12s going to the Hackney quartet. Overall Hackney took fifth place in the competition and the borough sits 11th for all events at the moment. Well done to all the team, reserves and the rest of the squad for continuing to keep up up at the top end of the London boroughs.

TT results Hackney order - Bella, Shaq, Aminue, Tyrell, Frank, Molly, Sam, Kai.
