Sophie had a very strong ride today at the Regional Championships, only being pipped into 3rd place by the Eastern League leader, who rode on her wheel for all the race, just to sprint past at the line.

The winner who was at one point only 10 seconds ahead, has a brother who is winning the U14s National Trophy series by a massive amount. Sophie couldn't get his wheel, as younger riders held her up through some single track, which in turn allowed her follower to close the gap on each lap.
