As his 2019 season begins to wind down, National Mountain Bike Champion 19 years old Robin Horsfield, can point to several significant milestones on his continuing trek towards becoming a bona fide contender at the highest levels of Mountain Bike racing.
In his final Wednesday Night Series race held last evening, Horsfield set a course record on the most difficult course, finishing in 47:33.
Horsfield will finish ranked well within the top 10 competitors in Ontario (currently ranked 8th, he is at 74 series points and within 2 points of 5th place).
This includes professional and former professional riders, some of whom have been riding professionally since Horsfield was a toddler.
Horsfield will finish 2nd overall at the Hardwood Hills Wednesday Night Series despite missing 4 of the 18 races due to World Cup appearances and a return to Bermuda for some down time.
This includes 9 first place finishes during the series. The series has a regular weekly attendance of over 200 riders, many of whom also regularly compete at the Canada Cup and World Cup levels.
Two World Cup appearances, each with an improvement in performance over his maiden World Cup in 2018.
