2023 Hawks Club Championships

HETHERSETT HAWKS / YELLOW BRICK MORTGAGES have had busy weekends concluding several competitions and picking up trophies on the way.

A lot further from home on the Saturday was Glyn Morgan who was contesting the final round of the Eurovets Series at Heckmindwike in Yorkshire.  He finished second in the A Final of the Over-60s which gave him the runners-up award for the series.  He also finished second in the B Final for the Over-50s, finishing fifth overall in the competition.

Glyn was back at Hethersett the following day successfully defending his Veterans title in the Hawks Club Championships.  Twenty-one members took part over eight categories and there was a hat-trick of wins for Mason Martin – Under-16, Under-19 and Senior.  Nyla El-Labany  and Aiesha Musa retained their Under-8 and Ladies titles respectively and the other winners were Oscar Copeland (Uder-10s) and the most impressive rider on the day – Hugo Kemp in the Under-13s.

Special mentions are worthy for Amelia Dodson and Lola Martin, who each raced in four categories, 5-year-old Olly Wright, who had his first competition, and Austin Brailey – back on a bike after a bad crash in training six weeks previously. Also the Club are indebted to Paddy Wenn for coming over to referee the events.
