Euan Sanderson

Euan Sanderson qualified to be one of the Teesside District representatives for the CTT National Youth Championship Final (GHS Trophy) for riders from 12 to 16 years.

The final which took place on 8 September was run on the B10/3A course which was pretty horrible (a potholed, concrete, busy dual carriageway), but very fast with a strong tailwind on the outward leg and headwind on the return.

Euan did a massive PB of 21:00 mins, knocking 2:24 off his previous best. From 110 starters he was 22nd overall and 6th 15-year-old. A great result Euan!

The event was won by Josh Charlton of Hetton Hawks in 19:31 – the top three riders all did sub 20:00 breaking the Championship record.

The full results can be seen here.
