Joy expressed her excitement in becoming the 2023 Jr National Champion in her hometown and commented, “Honestly can’t even express how special this was. Raced my first ever DH race here so to take the win yesterday was just unreal. Being surrounded by all of my friends and my whole family…something I’ll remember forever. A huge huge thank you to @dunbarcycles @corsacycles @cmacarthur87 and the whole team you guys are seriously awesome and such a great crew to share this with. Still haven’t stopped smiling!”

The biggest cycling event ever, will see the world’s greatest riders get together in Glasgow and across Scotland to compete at the highest level, make history, and show the world the power of the bike.
