WELL DONE ECRC – You did us proud.
It started as a very frosty morning for the Juniors and Seniors taking part in this qualifier, some having to be on site for 8am to walk the course and warm up (if we ever did)!
The 70cm class kicked off with Pat Hatch, Michelle Phillips, Pippa Hobbs, Tamsyn Morris and Rebecca Thom, It proved to be a challenging course. Michelle securing an Individual 10th place. Unfortunately no team qualified.
The 80cm Senior class consisted of Margaret Best, Amy Blake, Caroline Wills and Chantal Gardiner. The team secured a fantastic 2nd place (again). It was frustrating for those riders for the 3rd year running. Individual places for Amy 5th and Margaret 8th.
80cm Junior Class. ECRC put forward 2 teams, the older ones and the younger ones(mainly) Team BLUE Rosie Busby, Millie Frost, Faith Davey and Fleur Jackson. Team RED Megan Busby, Tegan Holdaway, Florence Scard-Morgan and Flo Wickham.
Fleur in her 1st RC qualifier smashed it for an Individual 1st place, with Tegan hot on her heels. Millie 5th and Megan 6th. Rosie 8th. Team BLUE just pipped team RED to the team Qualifying space for Championships in March, with Tegan taking the Individual Qualifying slot.
The 90cm Senior class, Abi Baker, Margaret Best, Amy Bennallick and Sam Underwood secured Team 3rd with an Individual placing for Abi Baker, 2nd, for a qualifying place for champs.
The 90cm Junior team of Phoebe Frost, Beth Stephens, Beth Witton and Evie Baker continued the Juniors winning streak with a Team 1st place. Phoebe Individually 1st, Beth S Ind 2nd Beth W Ind 4th and Evie 5th showing what a consistent team they are. Special mention has to go to Phoebe, fully expecting to jump the 1m at the Q so kindly stepped down to fill the team when we realised our 4th rider had too many points. THANK YOU Phoebe,
The 1m class, Issy Thomas stepped up to this class and rode a storming round for an Individual 7th place
The Championships take place on 13th – 14th March at Aston-Le Walls.
Looking forward to seeing these teams strut their stuff again
