More top placings for Phoenix in round 4 of the NEXCMTB Series, ahead of the clubs round early next month. Grace Castle claimed another win in the U12, Girls, Ben Scott was runner up in the U10Boys and Jonah Davies-Jones narrowly missed out on a Podium place in fourth.
After a winter of competing in the now Nationally renowned CXNE series, we round up the performances of Phoenix riders which resulted in yet another Championship win for the club and a wide spread of abilities competing, many for the first time. For many it was their first events, and for some their first in an older age group. Despite this, all completed all the events they started in - not one DNF!
