The second year of the Hadleigh International had a lot to live up to after last years successful event, we need not have been concerned though because it was all as good as last year and on the track it was taken to a whole new level, if you are a supporter of our GB riders that is.

The facilities are proving their worth for training and introducing new young talent into Mountain Biking, the proof is appearing in the results GB riders are attaining.
