ONE of the country’s top women mountain bikers returned to her old school to pump up a growing interest in the sport.

Cait Elliott was this weekend racing in the British National Point Series at Dalby Forest, near Pickering, after already competing in the World Cup at Dalby in May.

Earlier this week, Cait took time out from her training to return to All Saints’ RC School in York and meet members of the school’s new Mountain Biking Club.

The club has more than 40 students and members have already enjoyed a day experiencing the trails at Dalby.
