This is a wonderful series of achievements by two extremely talented Motocross riders. 

Cooper has recovered from a serious injury riding in an event prior to entering Argyle House, breaking his femur. It's pleasing to see Cooper has made a full recovery. 

We look forward to hearing of both boys' results over the various 2023 competitions. Especially Cooper, who is about to compete in Australia in July.

Congratulations to both young men!
