Hawks Move Indoors



Six riders from Hethersett Hawks / Swinton & Co had their first real taste of indoor racing when they travelled to Salford for the British Indoor Championships.  There was success for Jazz Abbott, sponsored by PDQ Logistics, who qualified along with Philip Adams for the Under-16 Final.  Philip struggled in the tough competition but Jazz overcame a slow start with some determined riding.  He won his last two races to finish on 16 points to take third position on the rostrum.  He is pictured above receiving his award.

Jazz also reached the Under-19 Final but found that particularly tough as did Scott Grimes who reached the Under-13 Final.   

The team events provided mixed fortunes.  As the British Outdoor Under-16 Champions, the Hawks were fancied to make the final but two punctures and a heavy fall ruined their chances in the Under-18 event.  The same four Under-16 riders plus Dave Martin, who had reached the Senior Final and scored 10 despite an exclusion, took on the top teams in Britain and did well to finish third out of five in their Semi-Final. 

All in all it was an enjoyable weekend from which the Hawks learned quickly to adapt to the different style of racing.
