LEARNING CURVE Bryony Fishpool and Maurice Tate compete in the youth league

THE Southborough & District Wheelers have completed a successful cyclo-cross season with  the club’s youth section recording some excellent results and placing well in the season’s final league tables.

The club has flourished under the guidance of Bruce Sandell, who passed British cycling level CX qualifications earlier in the year.

He and fellow club coach Alan Oakley have been able to secure excellent training facilities to support the development of the club’s younger riders.

FINE SEASON Theo Sandell finished third in the Under-10s out of 44 riders

SDW were well represented across the youth category races, competing for 30 minutes on the full adult courses, at times carrying their bikes across the cold and muddy courses.

In the final season tables, Theo Sandell finished third out of 44 riders in the Under-10 boys; in the Under-12 boys Jamie Scriminger was well placed in 14th; Bryony Fishpool was sixth in the youth female section, with Felix Todd 14th, Maurice Tate 17th and Todd Purchas 19th in the youth male league; Cameron Preece recorded an impressive sixth place in the junior male section.
