Let’s just keep this simple……  I know you are often only as good as your last race result, but this season has seen a steady stream of good results in races across the UK and Europe for MTB Strength Factory trained riders.

Every weekend my riders are smashing out solid race results and this weekend was no exception with plenty of podiums and a couple of wins to add to the trophy cabinet.

Glentress 7 endurance MTB event:  1st place for Joe Norledge.  I provide strength training for Joe who programmes his own riding and over arching training plan.

British Downhill Series, Bala:  Elite Men – Rich Thomas from Team Wideopenmag 17th in a stacked field and whilst holding down a full time job, beating a few full time pros with a rapid time.  Watch out top 10!

Elite Women – Veronique Sandler 4th in her first BDS of the year, riding for Loose Riders.

Expert Men – Kye Forte 5th riding for Team Wideopenmag.  Kyle is now the number 1 ranked Expert in only his first season up from Masters.

Women – Lindsay Hanley in 2nd riding for NX2 and bouncing back after a massive crash at the Fort William BDS a couple of weeks before.

Junior Men – Charlie Hatton taking another win aboard his Nukeproof riding for Team Wideopenmag.  He put a good couple of seconds into the other juniors and leads the overall standings.  He is going into the World Cup at Fort William feeling fast, strong and confident.

Youth Men – Morgan Tyrrell in 7th although there is some controversy being resolved over some suspect timing issues so who know how well he actually did.  What I know is that he is working hard and riding really well and still managing to study for his GCSE exams.  Top work Morgs.

I am just doing my last few gym sessions with my riders for the week before heading up to Fort William for the World Cup and the 4X Pro Tour.  I have Charlie Hatton racing in Juniors, Veronique Sandler in the Women and Duncan Ferriss racing the 4X and with a score to settle from last year!  Bring it on……..

Stay Strong
