Ben Finishing 3

Forres, Moray, Scotland

This is my son Ben he is sprinting toward the finish line in second place overall in the first of the Dirt Crit races series at Cluny Hill, Forres, a three lap race that combined both under 14 boys and girls with under 16 boys and girls. Despite his non specialist bike being in rather a poor state of repair and the very obvious discrepancy in size, weight and strength he managed to finish the race in overall 2nd place just seconds behind the eventual winner but led his age category by a huge margin to win gold in the under 14 boys category. In the words of dearly departed Brucey "didn't he do well"? Roll on Golspie.
