The winning habit is like Father, like Son in the Gronkowski family. Dad Ewan is passing on the nifty bike handling skills and speed to his son Gavin, with young daughter Eilidh taking part in the races too! This will be wee Gavin's first time competing on the British stage and we here all know that he will definitely be a shining star of the Under 8 category. Make sure you get in there early and get this kids autograph, he's gonna be a cycling superstar! Ewan is picking up some excellent results at the SXC series this year riding in the extremely distinctive bright orange and blue of the Mukyriderz - another one of the big Fife teams. Make sure you look out for them both and support them well in their races.
Good luck boys!!
