British Champs Rider Bio - The Hanlon Cole Sisters

There seems to be a lot of family double acts in cross-country mountain biking. Here's yet another, Eve and Millie Hanlon Cole. They're smiley girls who put all their effort into racing and will do their club and us at the SXC proud when they take to the Cathkin Braes course at 9.30am on Sunday morning. They're part of the recent young generation of rising stars coming from Peebles and should be easy to spot in the red, white and black of Peebles CC. Make sure you say good luck to them pre-race and cheer them on extra loud during the race as they put their all into it.

Good luck girls from all us here at the SXC Series! :)
