Last Tuesday saw the final event of the year for the Mallory Park Road Race League in what has been a fantastic year for the Whizz Kids.
Our experienced riders Jamie Kershaw, Jacob Smith and Jacob Collins returned to Mallory in the Under 14 and Under 10 categories and for 2021 they were joined by some fabulous younger riders who all came along to try out racing for the first time.
Having already learned a lot from their Whizz Kids sessions and racing on the small track at Bruntingthorpe, Charlie Hardwicke, George Bailey, Daniel Hardwicke and Nate Durnin all rose to the challenge of the one-mile circuit at Mallory…. Which is an enormous challenge for little legs and small bikes!
We’ve seen wins, crashes, mechanicals, some serious hard work and lots of smiles. The riders all worked incredibly hard and managed to secure third place in the overall team championship.
Special mention to Daniel Hardwicke who was awarded the Combativity Award for his focus, commitment and 100% effort at every single race. For such a young boy he has shown incredible determination against older riders and we can’t wait to watch him next year!
