Summit All*Stars are Hungry for Success!
Sunday saw riders from all over the southern regions take on Round 3 of the Gorrick Saddle Skedaddle Spring Series. This time racing was at Hungry Hill near Aldershot, taking on many of the favourite technical features of Round Two, with extra hills and singletrack challenges added in.
Racing kicked off with the Under 11s in which Lucy Allsop again triumphed in the girls category, riding strongly and gaining useful experience as one of the youngest riders competing on the day. Zach Rahaman again rode well into 6th place in only his second ever MTB race.
Summit’s sole rider this time in the U13s, Charles Rollins couldn’t quite match his excellent 5th place of Round 2, this time finishing in eighth place.
The dynamic trio of Ben Broadhead, Ross Deall and Tom Barrowcliffe finished 4th, 5th and 8th respectively in the Juvenile (13-14) boys category, showing a strong pool of talent for the future in this age group. The boys have already been approached by the British Cycling Central Regional Development Team as riders that they are keen to offer additional coaching and development opportunities for.
James Creavin was Summit’s sole representative in the Youth boy’s category, finishing a credible 8th in a very strong field.
The young riders are all looking forwards to challenging for the overall series prizes at the final round on 13th April in Surrey.
Summit MTB Club runs regular coaching sessions and trail rides for young people aged 8-16 in and around the Chilterns. If you would like more information, please email Clare Muir, Head Go-Ride Coach - firstname.lastname@example.org.
