The inaugural Gateway Cycles Youth Challenge took place on Sunday 12th July. Thirty keen, up and coming young cyclists braved the early morning downpour and were rewarded with sunny blue skies and a fantastic days racing around a twisty, testing dirt crit course.

Thanks to all the young riders who took part and made an exciting day of racing for all the spectators, we hope you enjoyed this very different type of race format and will come back again next year. Thanks to all the parents for supporting their children and our event and for all your help throughout the day.
