Day one of the British Club championship weekend the Burt sisters took to the Birmingham track in semi final 1 following a redraw the girls were faced against pairings from Exeter, Leicester and Birmingham. The girls rode great scoring a total of 24 points, Georgia scoring 16 and Megan scoring 8 including a non-start. Unfortunately this wasn’t enough to make the finals but they the true winners for not having to race another 6 rides in the heat and instead could sit in shorts eating ice cream watching their fellow friends and riders battle it out in the final .
Well done girls and to all who rode!
