Sarah Wightman is hopeful that Renvale Racing can continue their recent mountain biking success over the coming months.

Wightman and her husband Jamie co-own Revel Outdoors, who help the team by providing their Cannondale bikes and other bits of kit.

Now heading into a third season of competing, Wightman is keen to see the team build upon their recent triumphs at local and national level.

“The team has been going now for a couple of years and they’ve been really successful,” she said. “It’s helped to create a real buzz and the interest has grown dramatically.

“Things are going from strength to strength with the team and hopefully that will continue this year.

“They’ve found that more and more people are expressing an interest and if they show promise, they’re being taken on.”

The team currently compete in the MSG Eastern Region MTB XC Series, which gets underway in Hintlesham this Sunday.
