Danby’s Frazer Clacherty continued his flying start to the season with an impressive first place in the Youth Category of the National MTB cross-country series.

Frazer, who rides with Richardsons CC, travelled to Redruth for this second round.

He described the Cornwall course as “brilliant, there were some very technical steep descents along with some hard hills”.

The weather was perfect and this suited the 15-year-old better than the first round, held in near freezing temperatures and snow on the trails.

Victory was earned after a tussle over three laps decided by a sprint finish, Frazer winning by eight seconds.

The next round will be in Shropshire in June.

Another local rider, Mike Thompson, was first in the junior category.

Mike is now a member of the Olympic Development Squad.
