Inter-regional MTB championships – team selected

Team Selection has now taken place for the 2015 Inter-Regional Mountain Bike Competitions which are due to take place on 18-20 September at Hadleigh Farm in Essex. The riders were selected based on two factors, their bike skills and their results in cross-country races. Twelve riders had put their name forward, with eleven able to take part in the bike skills trials. It was a great spectacle to see how well these U14 and U16 riders performed the cycling challenges.

The final team is:
Adam Duff (Xmtb McConvey Cycles)
Craig McCarthy (Xmtb McConvey Cycles)
John Buller (Banbridge CC)
Thomas Creighton (Xmtb McConvey Cycles)
RESERVE: Drew Armstrong (Xmtb McConvey Cycles)

Where there has been great improvement from the female riders at the trials, the standard was not high enough this year to be competitive against strong opposition from the other GB regions.

All youth riders, especially the Under 14s and Under 16s, are encouraged to keep working on their off-road bike skills.

We wish the team great success.
