After the presentation in the Mitchell Arts Centre the team representatives all came outside for a few more photos with the cars.

It was great to meet the other girls and to wander around amongst all the stars of cycling. Beth is the current junior national XC champion, there also were Madison and Derny champion Hannah Walker, Andy Tennant who is World Team Pursuit Champion and ‘Superman’ Ian Wilkinson in amongst all of the other super riders who will be tearing up the streets of city centres all around the UK.

I am looking forward to the first round of the JHTGP in Oxford!!

We were all assigned a mascot each from a local primary school to look after us on stage.
