Hollie Roberts #112Long time since being out on my bike we headed up county to Woverley for a days racing with Tom Arnold, WOW what a mess, track was brutal after lots of rain it was rough and wet!! But I went for practice and rode all 3 races to the best I could considering, up against some fast boys and boys that were used to riding in these conditions but did myself proud and finished the day with an 9th overall.9th December dad and I travelled to Wheeldon off road centre for a days training with Alex Snow. Alex was training us on corners, track conditions, how to hit jumps and general riding technique. I am really loving my training days; feel I get so much from them and they are helping me become a better rider. Littlesilver Saturday 13th December, another mud bath...... but great fun, most of the adults went home but us kids made the most of a bad track, rode the track where we could it was great! Managed to ride 4blocks with my mates and got some good practice out of it, riding in the wet slop...Also since we last spoke I’ve had a birthday and am now officially a TEENAGER..... just not to stroppy!! One lucky girl thou to have a nice new bike...already for my new 2021 season and my first full season as a TDF rider.

Hi my name is Hollie Roberts, I am a student at Crispin school. I have been riding in MX since 2017 after watching my cousins racing. I started on a 65cc in 2017 and rode in a couple of championships rounds for South Somerset & Southwest most weekends, this meant riding on various tracks all over the southwest, I managed to finish the season in 6th position for South Somerset & taking female rider of the season & most improved, and 10th position for Southwest & most improved rider. I have competed in two consecutive years at the Girls Nationals, first year taking a podium place in 3rdwhich I rode my 65cc and the second finishing 7th overall in the 85cc group, racing up against some high standard of girls. Last season I also competed in the MCF Masterkids event held up at Mildenhall which is another National event with lots of very talent children of all ages, riding all different sizes bike in lots of differentgroups, I done myself proud coming home with a 28th from a line up of 40. Finishing 2019 season on a SW 85 for local clubs Southwest with a 8th position and taking fastest female for the 2nd year running and for South Somerset finishing 7th.I was really hoping to compete in BWMA this year riding with Girls in all age groups and all abilities but due to COIVD the season has been cancelled. I am looking forward to riding Weston Beach race this yearwhich will be a first for me. I love riding MX, and would really like to see more girls riding and for the sport to recognise us as much as they do for boys
