The news follows another successful weekend for the club, this time at Tatem Park in Enfield.
Flynn McGurk scooped gold in both the 2,000m category three and 1,000m races, with Warren Eve and Lucy McInerney sharing the podium with him in the second of those races.
Arthur Buckler, seven, finished as runner-up in the category five race but took first place in the Mini-Boys challenge. James Eve also brought a gold medal home by winning the Scholar Boys race.
The team is now preparing for their next race on Sunday June 18.
