Poppy reaches Sum­mit

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

SUM­MIT Moun­tain Bike rid­ers had a tri­umphant time in a com­pet­i­tive Go-Ride Tour event at Cas­siobury Park, Wat­ford, on Satur­day.

The Chiltern hope­fuls raced hard in the hot sun in three events – a sprint course, a twisty MTB course and a hand­i­cap race.

The first to tri­umph af­ter all three events was Poppy Gre­gory, aged seven, for the U8 girls. She was joined on the podium by fouryear-old Katie All­sop, who rode strongly into sec­ond place.

Eight-year-old Lucy All­sop won the U10 girls event with another strong dis­play and nine-year old Wil­liam Ak­ers strode to a fine vic­tory for the U10 boys, while his sis­ter Re­becca com­peted well to take top podium spot in the U14 girls sec­tion.

Mean­while, for the U8 boys, six-year-old Harry Gre­gory rode strongly to just miss out on a podium place, tak­ing fourth spot in his first cy­cle race.
