CLUB NEWS: Wells gets Hethersett’s 1st British Individual podium place in 15 years

HETHERSETT HAWKS / YELLOW BRICK MORTGAGES had their first podium place at a British Individual Championship for 15 years when Owen Wells rode superbly to be runner-up in the British Junior Indoor Championships in Coventry. He dropped two points in his five races to earn a place in a sudden-death race-off for the title against Lewis Brinkhoff from Suffolk The Kesgrave rider is vastly experienced at Youth and Junior events, having won a number of British titles and he used all his experience to take the title from a gallant Hethersett rider.

Owen’s success is a just reward to his commitment to training and his parents’ commitment by travelling to Coventry for indoor practice sessions. Owen also competed in the Open category where he again rode well scoring 10 points in the Semi-Final.

The success kicks off 2019 on a high for the Hawks who have also announced an exciting new sponsorship deal over three years with Yellow Brick Mortgages. The outdoor season will start in March.
