IT clearly takes a lot to rattle the chain of 15-year-old Blackwood mountain biking ace Andrew Dunlop, a newly crowned World Cup winner.

Despite suffering first race disappointment when his bike chain broke at the prestigious Fort William event, Andrew recovered to later set the fastest male under-16s time in a subsequent race.

Andrew’s proud dad Scott said: “Despite his initial disappointment, Andrew remained focussed on what he had to do.”
