As reported in last week’s Standard, Jael Maw, pictured above centre, is the new girls’ under-10 Midlands MTB cross country champion.

The young Boston Wheeler clinched the title by winning the final race of the six race series at Dudmaston, Shropshire.

Having won three of the previous five races she entered the final event just four points ahead of her nearest rival Harriet Greenshill of Linchfield City CC.

But Jael put in a powerful display to beat her rival by 49 seconds to win race six and claim the title with a total of 240 points. Harriet finished eight points behind in second place on 232.
