Skye, year 7, has been doing incredibly well in her recent BMX competitions. Last month She came 4th in her age group at the British BMX Championships and was the youngest competitor in her age group.Two weeks ago – not content with competing against girls – she competed in the boys race at the South Regionals and the South Championships, coming 5th in the final.
Last weekend Skye had a great competition at the BMX National race in Leicester, which was the last of 12 rounds and marked the end of the season. She raced 2 bikes – 20” and 24” – for the first time at that level. She was one of only 2 girls in the cruiser (24”) category and won the B final.
In the National Series, she came 5th in the 12 girls age group, improving her UK ranking from No 15 to No 5. This means that she has qualified for the World Championships in 2019.
What a fantastic achievement – truly embodying the fearless spirit of Sydenham High. We can’t wait to see what happens next…
