12 student from years 7,8,9 and 11 took part in the schools race at the Woking round of the tour series. First up was the year 7,8 and 9 race in which there where two teams from Winston. Ben Bishop lead the first time to second after the first lap, before Daniel Harrington stormed away to give Winston a 300m advantage going into the third lap, but an unfortunate crash caused by a wet road surface meant that Dan Swords was unable to finish his lap so the team did not finish although the final man Ieuan Woods was still allowed to do a lap of the course. The second team rode consistently throughout the race to finish in the middle of the group.

 Next was the year 10-13 race in which there was one team from Winston made up of year 11s. The first lap by Will Bloxsome put the team in the middle of the race, Joe Martin than kept the team in 6th place. The third lap from Scott Porter placed the team in 4th place behind two teams from Gordons and one from SJB. Kieran Woods then took up the final lap and closed the gap to second place Gordons and brought the team to second place.
