Kingston Cyclists Excel At The London Youth Games

Great result in the cycling competitions helped Kingston to its best placing at the London Youth Games for 10 years!

The borough’s young sports stars collected 10 gold, 11 silver and six bronze medals to claim 11th in the overall Jubilee Trophy standings on Sunday after finals weekend at Crystal Palace. Team Kingston collected 988 points to finish only two points above 12th placed Redbridge, but a 228 adrift of champions Wandsworth, who claimed the title for a third successive year.

However, the newly formed cycling squad, The Kingston Junior Cycle Club, proved their worth; with Tobias Dahihaus taking boys’ road race and ITT silver and Kate Shelton stealing girls’ road race bronze as Kingston claimed a team bronze in the event for the first time.

Well done to all that took part!

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on info@cyclekingston.net with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
