On the lead up to Round 7 of the BTC, Carrie Dickinson was unfortunately struggling with illness and feeling far from 100% heading into the trial. Determined to take part, despite the illness, Carrie travelled to the event, camping overnight in her converted van!

Similar to the Nene Valley track earlier this year, Carrie battled through lots of challenging turns upon loose and dry ground on the natural track in Chelmsford. In spite of her efforts, Carrie saw some higher scores than she would like, including an incident with a boundary tape that she didn’t believe possible.

Dickinson had this to say: “It was one of them trials where it was very easy to drop silly marks which I did sadly!”

She continued “To top it all off I also had an off on the first lap which I hurt my right knee in and that affected me through the rest of the other 3 laps🤣.”

Carrie finished the trial in overall P6.

Carrie’s knee is now improving, and we hope that she won’t be impacted in her next ride which will be in the nationals rather than the British Championship. She will be riding in the Manx Two Day.

Lexelle is very proud to support and follow Carrie’s journey as she battles routes across the country. The unwavering drive and commitment from Carrie echo’s the passions of the Lexelle team. Good luck on your next ride Carrie.
