Round 3 of the British Mountain Bike XC Series was at Fforest Fields on Sunday 17th May 2015 in dry conditions on a very testing course with a rooty A line drop off that was catching out large numbers of riders. An early 9.00 am start saw 3 of our riders away in a larger field than they normally compete. Luke rode strongly on the hills and despite a mechanical was 15th and Tim was 24th in the under 14 race. Katie who was in the under 16’s race moved up from her seeded position on the grid of 21st to finish the race in 14th place and provided us with an exciting sprint finish that had the large crowd cheering. Excellent results for all three.
