London Youth Games 2015


London Youth Games 31.05.2015Though fielding a smaller squad, Newham retained their 13th ranking.  Newham’s performance was still strong against the other phase one Olympic legacy clubs, along with ten other boroughs Waltham Forest failed to gain any points, Greenwich and Tower Hamlets dropped their rankings.  Most significantly Tower Hamlets from 11 to 17 and it goes without saying the Newham squad extends their congratulations to the many racers for the Hackney team for climbing to first from second last year.

Though there are some inherent challenges being a novice team in this event; mainly the impact on confidence & esteem being in races ‘toe-to-toe’ with regional and national riders, when this is a once in a year race for all the Newham squad.  Plus this year some riders missed motos, because of selective calling from pen to start mound, but the whole team found the day exceedingly enjoyable and see this as a starting point for more racing competitions this year.

As coach of the club for the past five years, I am immensely proud of this year’s Newham riders.  NCY BMX-treme has fielded a squad since the first London Youth Games Race at Greenwich in 2012.  Every rider ended the day in a higher grouping than last year, all riders finished the races they started…even when taking a fall and from beginning to end they embodied positive competitive attitude.
