Many of you will recall one particular article in the `Achievements oytside of school' section... http://horsenden.ealing.sch.uk/home/achievements-outside-of-school/3724-max-and-karin-extreme-motocross-riders.html
We found out all about Max and Karin and their love of their hobby, Motocross!
We now have further updates about Karin's exciting career as a Motocross competitor...
Recently, Karin was crowned the Girls' NATIONAL Champion for auto, 50cc Motocross bikes! The event took place in Gloucestershire and Karin competed in five races... SHE WON EVERY SINGLE RACE! For this AMAZING achievement she was awarded a large trophy, with a motocross rider, proudly on display. She also won the HUGE Josh Coppins Trophy as she gained the highest number of points at this event.
Karin was truly beaming with excitement and joy as she recalled her feelings during the final race of the competition. She explained that whilst in first place she put, `too much on the front brake' and came off, leaving the first place wide open for the next rider. Fortunately, she was not injured as she came off the bike and her dad was on hand to re-start her bike. Karin quickly got back on and with sheer determination and skill she was able to overtake the then first place rider. Karin finished FIRST and was crowned GIRLS' NATIONAL CHAMPION!
Karin's dad has sent in the photographs of the day. Have a look at Karin in action below! Well done, Karin! We are so proud of you!
