Patrick Ward participated in the National Mountain Bike Championships on the 5th of April, in the holidays. He came third in the under 13’s age group. He also rode a cross country short course on the Sunday and came third, and a second in the Oceanias. His older brother, Jack, won the under 15’s championship giving him the right to wear the green and gold jersey for the next year.

Congratulations to Patrick and Jack. The boys are a fine example of commitment to their sport and how important it is to persist and keep working hard to achieve your dreams. Well done. They should be very proud of themselves.
