Just like to let members know that Sophie rode to a fine 3rd in the u12 cyclocross at Baldock today.

Always near the front, it turned into a tussle between Sophie and two Welwyn Wheelers boys.

With the leader opening a small gap his team mate sat on Sophie's wheel for four laps, until another Welwyn boy got in the way and caused Sophie to stop, allowing her follower a chance to jump clear and tag onto his team mate.

Sophie never gave up and closed to within four seconds of second place and only eleven seconds behind the winner.

This being Sophie's first cross race of the season it was a fine third
