Well what a great week! Samantha rode six tests at the Hickstead Premier League and gained over 70% in them all. Douglas had a few tense moments but they won the Inter 1 with over 72%, the first time they had ridden the test, but the star was Pascal. He came 1st and 2nd in the two Grand Prix classes getting 72% and 71% and was so consistent throughout. A very happy Team:)
