There’s Something About Mary
A Billingham BMX rider has returned home to Teesside after winning a prestigious National title. Mary Johnson a Member of the North East BMX Club and Tees Active Sports Academy was competing at the British BMX Championships held at the National Cycling centre in Manchester. The Championships saw over a 1000 competitors battling for honours. Mary a pupil at Northfield School was racing in the 15 and 16 years female class where she was placed first in all three of her qualifying heats and was second in the semi-final. Mary saved her best for the final finishing in first place and claiming her first British Championship.
This talented teenager was over the moon with her British title and added “It was the best possible end to a long season and has made all the hours spent training on and off the bike worthwhile”
Marys proud father Allan added “Mary has worked hard throughout the season and last winter started attending Spinning and Circuit classes at Billingham Forum and she is now reaping the rewards for all her hard work.
Mary is now determined to retain her title next season and become an even quicker rider so she is already planning her winter training programme which no doubt will see her a regular attendee at Billingham Forums Activ8 gym.
