National Champion

Huge congratulations from everyone at the school to Louie Urquhart Dixon on winning the CTT (Cycling Time Trials) National Junior Road Cycling TT Champs and the Road Cycling Hill climb at Cumbrae last Sunday. Louie’s TT time was a very impressive 21mins 35s and his hill climb was 5min 17s.

Louie is a National Champion!

He finished 17th out of all 100 riders (including adults) in the TT and 4th overall in the hill climb. Louie has now qualified for the British Hill Climb Championships in which he’ll be competing in Devon during October 2019.

This achievement is thoroughly well deserved, as Louie has exemplified being committed to improving every aspect of his cycling, as well as taking on all of the advice he has received from his coaches. Louie is a great example to all of what can be achieved when you put your mind to achieving a goal! We wish Louie very well for the British Championships in October.
