Congratulations to Lexi Carruthers

Lexi came away taking 1st both days with a clean win all day both Saturday and Sunday. She has to qualify each day with 3 X Motos, semi-finals and then the final winning all races taking a clean sweep on both days.

Lexi is very proud of herself and understand that these results are from all the hard work / training she has put in over the winter months whether it’s been in snow, wind or rain and she will continue to train hard throughout the year to keep achieving her goals.

She is now looking forward to Rounds 3 & 4 of the European cup at Zolder, Belgium on 14th + 15th April also followed by HSBC UK BMX Rounds 3 & 4 at Leicester on 21st & 22nd April 2018.

Year 7 takes part in National Counties Cross Country finals

Toby Wooton (7MSN) came 44th out of 168 year 7 boys.

Toby Wotton competed for Warwickshire county on Saturday at the National Counties Cross Country final 2018.  Around 36 different counties entered and 168 year 7 boys ran.  The course was horrific with swamps and puddles.  Toby ran his heart out and came 44th overall.  He ran through an injury on his achillies.  Toby described the experience as one of the worst due to the poor state of the course and the number of boys that ran it.  He was also awarded best YDL performer for his performances over the track season last year and received a nice big shield at his presentation night on Friday.
