The Oban Times - - Sport -

REP­RE­SENT­ING Scot­land ear­lier this year, Taynuilt young­ster Euan Sim com­peted in the first round of the Youth D Bri­tish Tri­als Cham­pi­onship in Mat­lock, achiev­ing an im­pres­sive third place.

He then com­peted in the sec­ond round held by Brad­ford Tri­als Club and the third round hosted by the Yeadon Guise­ley District Tri­als Club in York­shire, se­cur­ing an ex­cel­lent sec­ond place out of 24 riders in both rounds.

With only one more round of the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship re­main­ing, he is cur­rently in sec­ond po­si­tion, only one point be­hind the leader so it is all down to the fi­nal round in Mat­lock at the end of July.

Euan has also kicked off the Scot­tish cham­pi­onship in fine style, win­ning the first three rounds, and at the be­gin­ning of June he won the first two rounds of the Scot­tish Oset cham­pi­onship.

The Taynuilt young­ster is cur­rently lead­ing both the Scot­tish Youth D Cham­pi­onship and the Scot­tish Oset Se­ries and ex­cit­ing times lie ahead for the young rider.
