Stars shine in the Sun
The club’s junior racers were out in the bright and very hot sunshine on Saturday 16th July at the flat Bottom Circuit of 2.5 miles at Dalton Barracks Abingdon. In the Central Youth Series, this was round 3.
In the Under 10 boys and Girls raced together, so Henry Boyles and Jorgi Gillett were on the start line for a 20 minute + 2 lap race. Both riding around in the group and maintaining a watching brief, until the last few hundred meters, opening up a sprint for the line and ending with Henry and Jorgie both finishing 2nd in their respective categories.
Poppy Kisley and Bella Boyles were in the U16 girls race, both of whom have maintained very high standards this season. The race 45 minute + 2 lap race, took place in slightly cooler conditions, starting at 10:15 and usually for an airfield only a very gentle breeze blowing across. Once again both girls showed great racing knowledge, biding their time in the group until the final sprint for the line. Resulting in Bella finishing 2nd and Poppy very close behind in 3rd.
