A HAYFIELD teenager celebrated his best result of the season after competing in a national cyclo-cross championship.

Tom Craig, 14, gained a third-place finish in the British Schools Cycling Association national under-15 boys’ cyclo-cross championship, held recently at Thornbridge Outdoor Centre at Great Longstone, Bakewell.

A year ten pupil at Hope Valley College, Tom has been riding cyclo-cross since he was eight-years-old. He said: “I was very pleased with my result.”

Mum Sarah added: “He is really enjoying racing and loves competing.

“He races at national level - they have a series at national level - and in the summer he does mountain biking at national level as well.”
