With dad Alan being too poorly to race, it was up to sons Kyle and Jared Hill to step up to the plate at the final rounds of the British BMX series in Telford.

On the Saturday, Jared was unfortunately forced into a crash in his 2nd moto leaving the Lynn youngster sore and doubtful about continuing.

However with a win in his first heat he was able to qualify to the quarter-finals and then went on to finish fourth in the final, just missing out on a podium but a brave effort under the circumstances. Kyle dominated 13-14 cruiser by winning his heats and the semi and going on to win his first-ever national.

He also progressed to the semi-final stage of the 13 boys.

On the Sunday, still feeling sore but ready to race, Jared sailed through to the final and took a third place finish on his eighth birthday. Kyle won his heats and semi again on the cruiser but unfortunately a late start meant Kyle was blocked and had a lot of work to do to get back to the front.

Jared took a second place in the British BMX series for 2016 with his brother over the moon to be ranked third in 13/14 cruiser and 17th in 13’s. A huge step up from 10 in cruiser and 31 in expert from 2015.

With Alan’s double title, the boys’ second and third put the Lynn family firmly on the podium at the national presentation. August Bank Holiday sees the British BMX championships in Derby where the Hills hope to add to their success with a chance of becoming British Champion.
