PEEBLES Cycling Club's rising stars shone last weekend on the Olympics course at Hadleigh in Essex.

In the second round of the HSBC UK National Cross-country Series all of the teenagers who travelled from the Tweed Valley.

There were fantastic results in the morning races with Emily Carrick-Anderson leading from the front, straight to the top step of the podium, closely followed by Christina McGorum who secured third place by overtaking the two girls by opting for the more technical A line.

Her sister, Elena in the Youth females, led from the front holding off the challenge from the current British Champion to take the win.

In the Youth males category Corran Carrick-Anderson looked like he had the race in the bag until an error in one of the many rock gardens saw him slip to second.

But not for long as he finished strongly to take first place.

Callum Thornley, after an injury forced him out of the first round, had to work his way from the back of the grid, slowly picking off the competition to take a fantastic third.

With the morning racers all reaching the podium, there was a degree of pressure on the two PCC Juniors, Anna McGorum and Jonte Willins, racing in the afternoon.

Anna held off the chasing pack to take a strong second place in front of several elite riders.

Jonte, determined not to let his team mates down, started hard, holding second for a lap, then dropped back but fought into fifth to secure the final PCC podium place.

John Miroslaw from Peebles Cycling Club told us: "The sea of Peebles Cycling Club tops on the podium was a great testament to all their hard work through the winter months and the club are very proud of their results."
