Skye makes top 5 in UK for BMX

Skye, year 7, has been doing incredibly well in her recent BMX competitions. Two weeks ago – not content with competing against girls – she competed in the boys race at the South Regionals and the South Championships, coming 5th in the final.

Last weekend Skye had a great competition at the BMX National race in Leicester, which was the last of 12 rounds and marked the end of the season. She raced 2 bikes – 20” and 24” – for the first time at that level. She was one of only 2 girls in the cruiser (24”) category and won the B final.

In the National Series, she came 5th in the 12 girls age group, improving her UK ranking from No 15 to No 5. This means that she has qualified for the World Championships in 2019.

What a fantastic achievement – we can’t wait to see what happens next…
