Harry Thomas Thorpe of Darley Dale Pre-School won first place in the two-year-olds category at the 2016 Strider Bike Downhill race at Llangollen, Wales.

His trophy was presented by Steve Peat, legendary professional downhill mountain bike rider. The event took place at the final round of the British Downhill Series with 40 little rippers aged between two-five years striding on balance bikes down the slalom course of the finish slope to the cheer of big crowds. The enthusiastic riders demonstrated the energy and commitment of future generations of champion cyclists.
