On Tuesday 13th March Year 2 Sport and Public Services learners attended the National Cycling Centre in Manchester. The learners took part in track sessions around the velodrome whilst members of Team GB looked on and admired their efforts.
A time trial took place and the Bradley Wiggins of the Group was James Harding who completed the 250 metre circuit in a time of 21.96 seconds.
The UK National Cycling Centre was Britain’s first indoor Olympic cycling track, and has become one of the world’s finest and fastest board tracks. And because of the comprehensive programme of activities for all levels of ability, it is the busiest in the world, used not only by elite athletes, but also novices seeking to experience this exciting sport.
Lecturer Paul Tonks says, “This was a fantastic experience and opportunity for our learners, who were able to use the exact same facilities as Team GB riders, who were on the track within minutes of our students finishing their session. Learners then had the opportunity to see at close quarters the ability of the Team GB riders.”
