Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

UN­LUCKY moun­tain bike racer Zoe All­sop was de­nied a po­ten­tial win at the Gor­rick Spring Se­ries when her cy­cle got a punc­ture on the last lap on Sun­day.

All­sop rid­ing in the adult fe­male cat­e­gory at Crowthorne Woods, main­tained se­cond place through­out the first two laps but dropped to third fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent. But the Sum­mit MTB rider, from Hyde Heath, still grabbed a podium place and was pleased with her time, which saw her win her age cat­e­gory.

Her daugh­ter Lucy, 10, rode strongly in the U11 girls race Lucy All­sop to take first place in a time that also had her placed sixth amongst the U11 boys too.

She was fol­lowed in by fel­low Sum­mit MTB rider Ben Don­ald, nine, while the U13s race saw 12-year-old Wil­liam Shield, from Amer­sham, take third place in a highly com­pet­i­tive class.

The next round March 13.
