Lucy crowned Southern Regional XC MTB Champion!
Lucy Allsop (aged 7) rode a fantastic race in hot conditions to triumph in the Southern XC Championships held at Wasing Park near Reading. After a flying start that had her leading the whole field into the first wooded singletrack section, Lucy rode a well-paced race that saw her finish over a minute ahead of the next female rider and complete the two laps of the twisty 1000m course in a time that would have put her within the top male riders. Lucy, who rides for the Chilterns-based Summit MTB Club, was extremely pleased with her ride, having ridden the race exactly as she planned!
Molly Wingrove, (aged 9) and Lucy’s teammate at Summit MTB Club, rode strongly to finish second in the Under 11 girls race who raced four laps of the same circuit. Molly was pleased to finish so well in what was a highly competitive field.
