Great November to Remember for Maddie

Youth u16 Rider Maddie Gammons from Bourne Wheelers has certainly had a November to remember.  Maddie had a disastrous start to her National Series campaign with a mechanical at Round one in Shrewsbury.   She then went on to win rounds 2 and 3 in fine style. This weekend was always going to be the crunch event for Maddie and she went into the event with great form. The World cup course was challenging for all youth competitors and Maddie had her share of bad luck . After a storming start, she managed to stay clear of the lap one crashes  however the technical course took its toll and Maddie suffered a series of set backs with slips and crashes which dropped her back through the field. She battled hard however and managed to secure 4th place which was just enough to take the series leaders Jersey.

Milton Keynes Round 4 involved lots of running.

The Weekend before Maddie had a late call up to the Revolution Future Stars event at Manchester Velodrome. The short notice call up wasn’t really great for Maddie as she had just completed a really hard week of Cross Training in preparation for Milton Keynes, however she embraced the opportunity to race and gave it her best shot. She finished mid field in most races, but was most disappointed in the points race, finishing 4th in most of the point sprints just missing out on scoring points.

Maddie Wins in Southampton

Lincolnshire  Youth rider Maddie Gammons has taken her first win of the 2014 National Cyclo Cross Trophy series in Southampton.  Maddie has had a mixed year up until now with one set back after another. During the first round of the National Series in Shrewsbury she had a mechanical with one lap to go, which took her out of contention for the win.  Maddie had a poor start at the weekend but managed to find the strength to lap faster every lap eventually catching the leader within the last lap to take the win in style.
