The tour of Britain began stage 5 from the Cathedral Yard and some of the pupils went to cheer them on. There was so much going on including a demonstration of cycling skills by Andrei Burton one of the top elite trial riders in the World. Andrei is a former pupil and he was more than delighted to pose for photographs with the pupils. The children were then invited to the Sky Team and saw them alight from their coach and even managed to get some autographs. As a surprise Mr Dent had arranged from them to go inside the coach and see exactly how the team are looked after between races.
A marvelous experience, which they thoroughly enjoyed.
