Medal for Janet at National MTB Championships 2015

Great news – Janet Burthem of VC Melyd secured a Bronze Medal at the MTB National Championships 2015 – held at Hadleigh Park, Essex – the 2012 Olympic venue for MTB events.

We travelled down to Hadleigh for the National champs, both of us (Janet and Lucy) hoping not to come last. The course was great – man made with steep rocky A lines that were good fun, and the rest swoopy sort of stuff. It was very hot, about 26 degrees and like all these races was seriously hard. I couldn’t stay with Sarah who is on top form at the moment, or second place Lydia Gould who still rides for Torq, but was very pleased with third. Lucy did well riding all the A lines which a lot of the ladies don’t, and coming 7th. All in all a great weekend.” — Janet Burthem

Huge congratulations from all at VC Melyd – we are all so very proud.
