Almost exactly a year ago, Cotic-AQR rider Rachel Sokal fractured her pelvis in a high speed bike crash in Portugal.
This weekend she became European & National 24hr solo champion at the 24hrs of Exposure in Newcastleton on board her Cotic Soda and KP. As if that wasn't enough, it was her first ever 24hr solo race and she also picked up the Rookie jersey AND fastest lap prize!
Not content with one star on the team, Anthony Jordan also took his share of the limelight with 3rd in the 24hr solo National Champs category and 4th in the European category!
A stonking ride by Simon Usher on his Cotic Solaris also saw him complete the 12hr vets race in 9th!
More words & photos from Rachel herself to come in a few days, but in the meantime, some initial photos...
