On the 17th march Jacob (7) took part in the first Southern XC event at Matterly Basin, Winchester. Luckily the event was still able to go ahead after a lot of equipment was stolen from one of the trailers. With the thanks of the southern xc team and people offering various ways of support the event continued as planned.
The conditions were cold and windy but dry, the ground was a bit soft and sticky from rainfall the previous day. Jacob was part of a great under 9s category with 19 riders taking part. There was great competition from the start of the race and Jacob came in 6th place out of the male riders in his category.
Jacob was very happy with how his race went even with his small off he encountered. He’s very much looking forward to Rnd 2 next month.
