Despite the appalling weather and muddy conditions the two teams did brilliantly. It was a long and difficult day, the first time at an area qualifier for most of the riders, who all stayed cheerful and focused. A day of incredible achievement and special mention has to go to William Tuckett and Red for such a brilliant all round performance on the Novice 90cm course.

William & Red











Well done Tom, Flora, Ellie, William, Amelia, Tamsin, Charis and Natasha.
