UKGE at AE – Carrie Poole – 3rd Elite

UKGE at AE – Carrie Poole – 3rd Elite

It was quite the weekend for Sheffield racers last weekend at the first UK Gravity Enduro of the year. Ae played host and Pocket Rocket Carrie Poole came away with 3rd place in Elite Women. Not bad for a 4 footer.

The boys did good too; Local Pinner Craig Evans also came away with 10th in Elite men, reet good for his first ever Enduro race for the On-One Team. Team mate Freddie Oxley picked up 23rd in Elite as well. Josh ‘LooseDog’ Lewis is now riding for Stif Cycles and picked up 14th in Elite, pretty good for a lad that blew his knee out 3 weeks ago. The Cotic-Steel City Media Whores were also out in force. Chays has moved up to Elite this year and took 22nd on the day. New Recruit and wannabe hipster, Rich Norgate, took 4th in Masters but both of them said they were somewhat disappointed and wanted better. Watch out for them all in future rounds.

Massive congratulations out to our mates Mandy Devine (left) and Dave Griffiths (centre) for their achievements in this years Gravity Enduro series. Mandy took the overall win in the Masters category and Dave  took the overall in the Hardtails. Both absolute Sheffield pinners (we’ll ignore the fact Mandy defected to Leeds a while back) who honed their skills on our fair trails (and Whistler, the Alps, Scotland, Wales, Yorkshire etc etc).  Great work lads.

Carrie Poole, the better half of Dave, took the win in last years women’s category so they forced her to stop sandbagging and move up to Pro. Carrie took 4th overall in her first year in Pro, another great achievement (for a lass less than 5 foot tall). Carrie…. “PEDAAALLLL”.

Carrie Poole Clinches the UK Gravity Enduro Series

This Is Sheffield’s favourite Faffer clinched the overall win in the Women’s category of the UK Gravity Enduro Series at the weekend. Carrie Poole’s 4th straight win means, just like Aaron Gwin, she’s got series sewn up. She finished first at Eastridge on Sunday and would have placed 2nd in the Elite Women’s category just 20 seconds behind Helen Gaskell.

Ticket to Ride have sponsored the Womens category so Carrie will be riding away with a free holiday.

Congratulations Carrie!

Carrie Poole won the womens category at the recent first round of the Gravity Enduro Series as Ae (she would have placed 2nd if she’d entered the Elite Class). This didn’t go unnoticed by Dirt who published this photo of her along with the most accurate caption possible. Great work Greggers.
