Gauteng Inter School XCE: Round 1

Sunday 27 July saw round one of the Gauteng leg for Inter School Eliminator Series take place at Sutherland High School in Centurion. Spectators were kept entertained by some very fast and exciting elbow to elbow and wheel to wheel racing with a number of close sprint finishes. It didn’t take long for tactics to come into play especially with regards to being the first to get into the narrow single track which had no overtaking opportunity and then dictate the pace. We finally managed to even get a few girls enter! Eleven schools from around Gauteng participated in round one, but after the word got out with regards to the amount and quality of prizes on offer One Movement are already flooded with additional entries for the remaining two rounds.

The second round takes place at Northern Farms, Diepsloot on the 3rd of August. And the final round is at the King David School in Linksfield on the 10th of August. You can enter online by clicking here. Entries are open until the Friday before the race at 12:00. R100 gets you entries into both remaining rounds of the series!
