Ely & District Cycling Club have a busy weekend

On Saturday two of the Ely & District Cycling Club's junior members took part in the Hereward CC round of the Muddy Monsters cyclocross race series at Thorpe Hall Hospice, Peterborough.

In the Under 10s race Kieran Vanhoutte was 9th in the Sprint Race and 3rd in the Endurance race to give him a finishing position of 4th overall. In the Under 12s race Tom Lewis finished in 1st place in the Sprint Race and 2nd in the Endurance race with the result that he won the event overall. Tom is currently in 3rd place in the Muddy Monsters Series with one round remaining.

On Sunday, two EDCC senior members took part in early season time trial races. Rob Golding took part in a race organised by CC Sudbury on the hilly BS24/R course near Sudbury. Rob rode the 22 mile course in a time of 52 minutes 11 seconds, 1 minute 46 seconds down on the winner Leon West, a time which left him in joint 6th place in the men's competition.

John Manlow was also racing on 11th March, but on the 25 mile E1/25b course, starting near Stansted Mountfitchet, in an event organised by Lea Valley CC. John finished in a time of 1:05:31, despite not using race bike or wheels but using training kit instead.

Another Junior member, Ollie Sinden, raced on Sunday in his first Four Cross event. Four Cross is a form of downhill mountain bike racing where up to four competitors race against each other on a technical downhill course at the same time. Ollie was racing in the Schwalbe British 4x Series at Chicksands, and ended up finishing 2nd in the B Final in the Under 12 age group.

Ely & District Cycling Club is sponsored by B&T Motors.
