Hopton Castle Downhill Mikey

We were in Cheltenham for the weekend and went to support Mikey at his downhill mountain bike race at Hopton Castle in Shropshire. It was fascinating to watch 300 riders throw themselves down this, in places, frighteningly steep course. We were only there for Saturday’s practice but enjoyed watching the riders pick and chose the fastest lines. Mikey seemed to be really enjoying himself and we were able to chat with him as he took several brief rest-stops on route down.

The times he flashed past at speed, only Atsuko was able to spot him and give us enough warning to get a few decent photographs of him…

We’ll let you know how he got on today when we hear ourselves. There was a little rain on Saturday but was due to be extremely wet on race-day.
