Stricly speaking, Cedric was the club's most successful rider in 2005 since he won more races than Yves Millière, James Beaumont and Chris Salt put together!All this and he's only six years old and races against older boys in the Under-8 category. One to watch... Cedric, along with the rest of his family moved to Hamburg in early 2009. You can read a goodbye interview with his dad, Thorsten Klassen here.
