Fiona Turnbull stormed to a fantastic 3rd place in the Under 16 Girls National Trophy Cyclocross event at Milton Keynes on Sunday 30th November.
On a particularly tough course, which had been used by the pros in the preceding day's UCI World Cup events, Fiona took on the nation's best under 16 girls, some of whom are more than a year older than her.
After the first lap she was lying in 4th place, and increased her speed over the second and third laps to move up into 3rd place, her last lap being the third fastest of any of the competitors. She was also fastest North East girl.
Following on from 6th place in the third round of the National Trophy in Durham two weeks ago, a further 30 championship points will have moved up her up from 13th position in the series.
Well done Fiona!
