Corey Watson finished seventh in the National Championships at Innerleithen last month.

Hawick mountain biker Corey Watson finished seventh in the National Championships at Innerleithen last month. Corey, 14, who received a £250 cheque from the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust earlier this year, was 'over the moon' with the result according to his dad Mark. Describing the weekend's action, Mark said: "It was a wet and warm practice day which made the conditions of the track very slippy and energy sapping. "Corey did not get on too well with practice, having a few small crashes and he was absolutely exhausted by tea time. "Sunday was a new day and he was up at the track again for his practice at 7.30am ready to go. "He had a good couple of practice runs and felt more positive on the track and on his seeding run ended up being seventh which he was buzzing with. "He ended up seventh again which he is over the moon with as it was a big race with good competition. After having such a bad day on Saturday, it made his result feel even better."
