Dale and Charlie both entered the UK Cable Nationals 2013 – held at Liquid Leisure, Datchet. The cable Nationals is the largest competition in the UK and gets rides from all over the UK together to battle it out for their UK Ranking points.
2013 was the first year with 2 AWB riders. Charlie had her qualifiers first – first run didn’t go to plan after crashing a raley however stuck a safe 2nd run to qualify 5th and into the final. Dale put out a strong run in his qualifiers, unfortunately falling during his second run which wasn’t quite enough to make it straight into the final.
Instead he rode in LCQ’s. He put down a very good run but unfortunately just missed out. He finished 9th in Open Men – an awesome result for his first ever Nationals. Charlie rode in finals on the Sunday – again falling in her first run on the Henshaw A-Frame, meaning a safe second run again was required to get on the scoreboard – which left her placing 5th in Open Women.
