Ella is another member of our Northern contingent, part of Ben Wyvis CC, and like the rest of the northerners, often with many miles to travel simply to get to races. Ella doesn't let this stand in her way and is a cracking wee racer in the Youth category. She'll be riding at 9.30am at Cathkin on Sunday wearing the black kit of Ben Wyvis CC. Give her a massive cheer as she goes past and show her how we support our riders up her in Scotland!
GOOD LUCK ELLA!!
