Cyclocross National Championships
Shrewsbury January 9th and 10th 2016
William Gascoyne – Third Place on the podium – Junior Men.
Riding for Sherwood Pines Cycles – Felt – Enve
Despite being on the front row I got a poor start with a slip on the first run up and a collision causing mechanical problems just after that.
This left me about ten seconds behind last place! Knowing I had a lot of work to do I composed myself and set about making up some places.
Within a lap I was in third place and I was battling for second with the leader in my sights. However the effort to fight my way back had taken its toll and I made a couple of mistakes in the running which allowed 2nd place to slip away. After that I slowed a bit but managed to hang on to third.
Both David Fletcher and William Gascoyne (Sherwood Pines Cycles – Felt – Enve) have been selected to race for the GREAT BRITAIN CYCLING TEAM FOR 2016 UCI CYCLO-CROSS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS.
This takes place in Zolder, Belgium on the 30th and 31st January 2016.
We are very proud to have two of our riders selected to ride for Great Britain! Go for it lads!
