Twins take top spots

The Throup boys dominated last weekend’s 24 Hour Trial, with twins, Sean and Tristan taking the top two spots.

Sean’s fast and consistent riding earned him the crown; however Tristan was never far behind his lead.

The pair finished just minutes apart, narrowly missing the trifecta they were hoping for, with younger brother Nick taking out fifth place after bike troubles.

It was a special year for Sean, who was competing in his 10th event over the past decade and chasing a second win.

“This year was slightly different for me, I didn’t just go to finish, I went to win and I got it,” Sean said.

“It was excellent for Tristan to finish on the podium as well – if anyone else won, I wanted it to be him.”
