Cyclo-Cross updatePosted on: 16 Jan 2020
Year 9 Misbourne student, Lucy took part in the National Cyclo-Cross Championships in Shrewsbury during the weekend of 13-17 January. Lucy finished 14th out of about 42 starters in the U14 Girls category. Conditions were tough, and the course involved almost as much running as it did riding. Lucy had a small crash early on in the race which damaged her bike and she lost time fixing it. Without this, she looked on course for a top ten finish. Nevertheless, she rode strongly and fought her way back through the pack to gain her eventual finishing position. She ends the season also with an overall National Ranking of 14th in the discipline.
Now Lucy will switch disciplines to cross-country (Olympic 'MTB XCO' discipline) mountain-bike racing where she is aiming for top three place in all her National level races, with a shot at being National U14 Champion at the end of the season in July. .
