Lucy Allsop (aged 6) came a close 2nd in the Girls under-8's race held at the NationalXC Championships at the Wasing Estate today. Lucy managed to pass some of the U8 boys but couldn't quite catch the older girl who won the race.

Lucy's mum, Zoe said "It was a great event for kids actually - after the main race the Go-Ride people did various races in a separate (but still quite technical) loop where the kids just raced again all afternoon. Lucy hit the wall half way round one, but bless her - she'd been given the chance to opt out many races before; so much respect to her!"
