Isabella Escalera cycles for South East of England

Year 10 student, Izzy Escalera represented the South East at the Inter Regional Track Championship in Glasgow this weekend. 

The Championships consist of all the different regions in the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland) competing in track Sprinting and Endurance races. 

Izzy raced in Endurance races - 60 lap Points race, 80 lap Madison, Elimination and Team pursuit.  The South East team all did very well and came 8th overall. 

In the Elimination race there are two heats of 23 riders in each race. The top 12 riders from each heat then go through to a major final and the remainder compete in a minor final. Izzy got through to the major final and came 10 overall. 

The head of PE, Miss Miles, congratulates Izzy "She is doing fantastically in her cycling and we are very proud of her efforts in the PE department". 

Izzy has now been invited to be an apprentice on the GB Cycling Team for 2017/18 in the sprint/endurance group. The aim is to take her cycling skills to the next level through increased physical and tactical training opportunities. 

Congratulations, Izzy!
