Amelia’s Weekend Results

We are always shouting out about the success of our pupils therefore we are so happy to share the achievement of Amelia in Phoenix’s result this weekend at the British National Downhill Series.

A downhill mountain bike race is a high-speed competition where riders compete against the clock to descend a steep, rugged course filled with obstacles like rock gardens, jumps, and berms, aiming for the fastest time. The tracks are normally around 3-4 minutes long.

This weekend, Amelia took part in Round 3 of the British National Downhill Series at Antur Stiniog, North Wales. The track is known for being brutal with changeable weather conditions as it’s positioned in a slate quarry which is very exposed to the elements.  The weekend was split into 3 sections: Friday practice and track walk, Saturday seeding and Sunday racing.

Amelia demonstrated exceptional skill and control to secure 2nd place across both seeding and racing in the U16’s Female category, navigating the demanding course’s steep drops and technical sections with precision, despite coming back from a recent injury, the intense competition and difficult weather conditions.

Well done Amelia – You’ve done Phoenix 🐦‍🔥 proud!
