This weekend sees Harry 'The Bullit' Buxton tackle qualifying for the GHS (George Herbert Stancer) National Trophy, riding in the North Midlands District Youth TT Championship at Hatfield near Doncaster on Sunday.
A series of strong results for the THRE Datawolves rider leading into this event put The Bullit in a strong position. A string of 1st places and a Junior course record at Witham Wheelers Open 10 are evidence of how well he's going. Most recently winning at the Hatfield open 10 with a time of 22.43, which in his words 'felt slow'. That's the overall victory, not just junior...slow indeed...
His recent disappointment with finishing 2nd in the National Circuit championships demonstrates his self belief and dedication, this guy is going places.

A bit about the GHS-
National Youth Championship for the GHS trophy.
George Herbert Stancer OBE (1878-1962)
'The George Herbert Stancer 10 Mile Time Trial Championship is named in tribute to a man of many talents. George Herbert Stancer or GHS as he was known, in his early years was a nationally renowned performer on both cycle and tricycle holding both titles & records.
Throughout his career he was a leading administrator of the sport, taking over the presidency of the C.T.C. in 1920 at a time when the membership was only about 8,500. Almost from the day he took over the membership started to grow again, and he had the satisfaction of seeing it rise to over 50,000 before his retirement in 1945. GHS was also for several years editor of cycling magazine and he continued to be active in the sport until his death in 1962.
After his death a trust fund was established with aim of promoting and encouraging participation amongst the young. To this end the National Schools 10 mile championship was formed and later adopted by the RTTC in 1970.'
