Report for Sunday’s mtb race from Tallulah Butcher.

Today we headed to Pippingford Park for the South East MTB Championships.

Really hot day, with a very technical, hilly course but beautiful setting in the Ashdown Forest.

In the under 10’s Harriet had her best race of the season, mastering a technical element in the woods and long climb out of it to take the title for 2021. William also had his best mtb race, coming in a strong 4th position.

In the under 16’s race which started at lunchtime, my Garmin recorded 30 degrees on the start line! A great course with everything in it, I came in exhausted and 4th.
