Saskia strikes again!

Our very own Saskia Hook spent the weekend “up north” on the the North West International Youth Tour.

Battling some horrendous weather conditions – windy and rainy – Saskia finished a creditable 15th in a field containing some of Europe’s finest youth riders.

Held over three days – racing included a prologue time trial and  a long circuit race on Blackpool’s sea front, then on to Lancaster for two short stages on the fast Salt Ayre Circuit, and finally on Monday the race moved to the UCLan Sports Arena in Preston for the final stage and the presentations of the winners jerseys.

Here’s the British Cycling report of the event, and the VeloUK report.
