Success for Grace

Talented local cyclist Grace Lister gave a stellar performance in the British Cyclo-Cross Championships held in Gravesend in January.

The Y10 Bridgnorth Endowed School student competed against 90 girls in the U16 category, finally finishing in a very credible seventh place.

One of many disciplines in which all-rounder Grace competes, cyclo-cross is a form of off-road bike racing with short, sharp courses, hurdles, obstacles, mud and plenty of intense action. This result is the latest in a strong of successes for the Bridgnorth pupil, who also achieved a bronze medal on the track in the National Youth Omnium Championships last August, her third national medal of the year, and finished second in the Street Sprints at the 2018 School Games in Loughborough.
