Connor Potgieter, a Grade 5 pupil at Laddsworth Primary School, took part in the 2-day Man and Machine Enduro at Boston from 28 to 29 July 2017. Connor, who is only 11 years old, was the youngest rider to enter this extremely tough Enduro on his KTM 85. The course covered 95km each day, with rocky terrain and tricky river crossings. Connor’s bike, seized on the home stretch, but the Marshall was able to take him over the finish line to claim his trophy.
Well done Connor, we are very proud of your achievement!
