National Championships Weekend

Always a busy weekend around Europe and one where emotions run high, the National Championships weekend is a focal point of many riders season. We won’t run through all the results, but would like to pass on our congratulations to Challenge Tire athletes who competed at the weekend.

Some notable performance include Anna Kay who took the U23 Women’s championships in the UK and who looked likely to take the Elite title until a mechanical derailed her chances. Challenge riders also took the title in the Junior women (Harriet Harndon), junior men (Ben Tulett) and Elite Men (Tom Pidcock).

Michael Boroš made it 3 wins in the Czech championships. Lara Gillespie took her second title in a row in Ireland shortly before David Conroy took the Elite Championships for the first time.

Eve Lechner made it a perfect ten in Italy, and in doing so took her 27th Italy title in total. Just north in Switzerland Loris Rouiller took the under 23 title and Jolanda Neff took the elite title.
