13 Year Old Maddie Gammons is the new Midlands under 14 girl cyclo-cross champion.
Competing at Beaumont Leas, near Leicester on Sunday, Maddie immediately hit the front and pulled away to a 30 second lead half way round the first of 3 laps. Her chief rival. Issabelle Boon from Belper RC, pegged her back a little over the nbext 5 minutes of racing, but from their on in it was all one way traffic as Maddie pulled further ahead to take the title by over a minute.
Unfortunately for the club Tim James was a none started due to being unwell in the under 16 buys race.
Aaron Bateman and Adam Botteley both rode well on the very technical course which didn’t really suit either of them to finish 15th and 16th respectively in the under 14 boys race.
In the Vets race, Mark Botteley was a none finisher after a couple of early crashes put paid to his chances.
