The beginning of the second week saw Lt Lynch-Staunton and LCpl Samuels join Lt Pryor and Tpr McGarrigan in St Moritz to tackle The Cresta Run and attempt to bag a share of the trophies on offer at the Army Junction Championship.
With the Championship on Thursday the new pair were left with little time to prepare. After beginners school on the Monday and a couple of falls at Shuttlecock under their belt they were thrust into the championship along with racers from a number of other regiments. The KRH team were split to make pairs and while Lt Pryor and Tpr McGarrigan competed together, Lt Lynch-Staunton and LCpl Samuels remained as a novice duo.
Due to falls in the first run, The Regiment was out of running for the 17th/21st Lancer's Cup, but with two personal bests Lt Pryor came away the victor, by some 8 seconds, in The Novice Cup.
On the back of this success Lt Pryor was invited to stay out a further week to train with the Army team. Much to his relief his progression continued and he came away victorious in The Services Silver Spoon race as well as riding the Cresta Run from top.
All in all a great return for the Regiment to The Cresta Run and some firm foundations laid for future seasons. The team would especially like to thank the trustees for their financial support without which, this season would not have been possible.
