Luke rides to glory in South West Championships
8:00am Sunday 29th September 2013 in Somerset Sport
A SEDGEMOOR student showed off his superb bike-riding skills at the South West BMX Bike Championships in Burnham.
Luke Perrett, from Combwich, won the 13 and under category in the event, held on his home training ground.
Luke is a student at Brymore Academy, in Cannington.
Robert Watts, director of boarding at Brymore, said: “It is an amazing achievement for any student to win a trophy but it does say a lot about a true Brymore boy and Luke in particular.
“Luke showed great determination and resilience in coming back from a bad injury not only to compete but to win and that is a real triumph and one he and we are rightfully proud of.”
There are no further races this year but Luke will continue to train at Brymore on the purpose-built bike track within the grounds and he has already set the fastest time for other boys to beat.
