Concept Group Follow Heather’s Mountain Bike Successes

Posted: 3rd August 2016


Congratulations to Heather Shanks ( Concept Senior IT support Analyst ) on her Silver medal at the British National XC Championships Masters Category at Cathkin recently. Heather was only 20 seconds off the win even with having to contend with her chain dropping, crashing once and nursing a cold!

Heather, who only started racing last year, is having a fantastic season so far:-

7th in her first Expert/Elite in Laggan – with an exciting sprint finish
4th in the Expert Category in her first British Cross-country race at Pembrey Country Park
Gold in the Expert Female category at the British Cycling MTB Cross-country Series in Plymouth – and a trip to hospital for stitches to a burst lip.
Silver in the Masters Category British National XC Championships at Cathkin

Well done from everyone at Concept Group, great achievement.
