Matt Walker was a man possessed on the hill this weekend, taking the win in Fort William has only spurred the Junior rider on. It came down to the very last man to knock him off the top spot for the day, and even then, Charlie Hatton could only put 0.7 of a second into him.

Tahnee Seagrave. Fresh off the back of her first ever World Cup win, she tanked her way down the track to take the win here in Rhyd-y-felin.

As always Kade 'the performing monkey' Edwards pleases us photographers with his signature move, this time he had come trees to contend with.

Vero Sandler, one of the most stylish riders on the hill. When she's not racing she can be seen throwing huge no handers over massive jumps but put her between the tapes and she's got the speed as well.

Kaos Seagrave is one of the fastest juniors in the UK right now, and that means in the world, second place in Lourdes proved that. Unfortunately, a crash on Sunday morning put him out of action for the race, but he is all good and ready for Andorra in two weeks time.

Jamie Edmondson would have placed 22nd overall, the FMD rider was flying all weekend, and he's only in the youths. Big things to come from the boy.
