fantastic results for club members at the World cup

What a weekend of racing at Nevis Range. Things started off well on Saturday with Lily Cant Mia Jackson and Isla Cant putting wheelers on the top step of the podium in all 3 female categories in the mini downhill. Charley and Archie Kennedy, Liam Vance, Archie Rodger and Kian Springett all put in great performances as well. In the main races Mikayla Parton qualified 5th in the elite semi finals to earn a well deserved place in Sundays final, Daniel Parfitt had an amazing run to finish 1st in the junior qualifiers to secure his place in Sundays final and Sorley Swabey had a great run, just missing out on a place in the finals with a 29th place in his first ever World Cup.

Things only got better on the Sunday with Daniel holding his nerve and putting in an amazing run to finish 3rd in the Junior race. A great result for all of the hard work and dedication that he has put in to get to this stage. Mikayla also had a great race to finish 9th in the Elite Women.

Christmas handicap 17/12/23

Fair to say that things were a little bit wet and windy for this year’s Xmas Handicap! However, despite the amber weather warning, 19  riders braved the conditions. Congratulations to Liam on taking the win! Special mention has to go to Gregor and Cory for toughing it out on the tandem despite being somewhat hungover! Congratulations also to Foss for winning the Civic Community Award for helping Marian out with her puncture and to Doug/Eileen for winning the best decorated Xmas bike ( Elf and Safety may however have something to say about the Christmas tree helmet decoration coming loose and blocking Doug’s line of vision on the singletrack descent!).

Many thanks to Andy for organising the event, to Marian for helping with course marking and to Jacqui and Dave for organising the much needed refreshments. The next race is Vince’s Winter League Memorial race at Nevis Range on Saturday the 30th of December.
