With the money that was kindly given to me by the Jack Bloor fund I was able to attend the national cyclocross championships in Hetton in January. It was a tough event meaning I had to change my bike every lap, but thanks to the funding given I was able to make sure that l was at my physical best and that I could achieve my best. The racing was close for places 2-7, with a tough climb and technical decent the places were always changing. I was pleased with my performance of 5th Place in the U23 women’s event, despite being one of the youngest in the category.
I would like to thank everyone at the Jack Bloor fund for proving me with this opportunity, and look forward to next season already where I can hopefully improve my result even more.’
Thank you very much,
Sophie Thackray 🙂
