The time-trial event was held on a 2km climb in the grounds of Ditcham Park School and at­tracted riders from as far afield as Devon and North York­shire.

The All­sop sis­ters – who at­tend Gate­way School in Great Mis­senden with seven-year-old Katie in Year 3 and 11-year-old Lucy in Year 6 – at­tacked the climb from the start and rode strongly all the way.

Katie’s time was good enough for her to win the South Re­gion Cham­pi­onships’ U9s com­pe­ti­tion and to fin­ish on the sec­ond step of the podium in the national event.

The U9s national win­ner was Emilia Shut­tle­worth, from Hol­ly­mount RC Pri­mary School in Bury.

Lucy faced tough com­pe­ti­tion in the U11s race and was de­lighted to make it onto the podium in third place in both the re­gional and national com­pe­ti­tions, beaten by Katie-Anne Calton, from Ha­vant, and Bish­ops Waltham’s Livvy Nanapoulou.
