GOLD for Grace

Grace competed in the Wellington Age Group Track Cycling Championships last weekend, she was representing the Kapiti Cycling Club.  Grace won every race for the U17 Girls age group, making her the U17 Girls Track champion for the Wellington region.

 

There is a photo on the front page of the website ( 5 races and she was on the top of the podium for all)

 

Grace was also just 0.8 of a second off the Wellington U17 Girls 2k pursuit record, where she clocked 2.58.15, which is an average speed of 40.4 Km/h.  Phenomenal considering there are No gears and No brakes and it was her first serious attempt at the Individual Pursuit event. She also had a great ride in the Points Race – taking some of the points off the U17 Boys in the event.

 

Grace backed up on Sunday with the local “Speed League” – where she won every race again and took the overall points lead (this included Senior and Elite Riders)
