Britain’s best riders will tackle the country’s toughest criterium circuit once again in May, as the OVO Energy Tour Series returns to the historic city of Durham for a record-breaking 10th year. As part of the promotions our school was visited by two professional cyclists, Hannah Farran and Jack Rees, who are both competing in the Cycle Tour Series. Our visitors spoke with all the children, during a whole school assembly, about the sport of cycling and worked alongside our younger children in the hope of raising their aspirations to become life-long or even professional cyclists. It was a fabulous experience for our children and we all look forward to watching the Cycle Tour Series on Saturday 18th May. Good luck Hannah and Jack and all the cyclists in their respective teams – Team Boompods and Team Ribble.

Cycle Tour Series comes to Durham!
A day of fun, fast and free cycling activities will be held in Durham on Saturday 18 May, culminating in elite women’s (17:30) and men’s (19:00) races around the series’ grueling and iconic 1.4-kilometre circuit. Taking place in the shadow of the city’s cathedral, the challenging cobbled climb of South Street has become synonymous with thrilling racing and a party atmosphere.
