Eight Cycle Club Ashwell riders have qualified for September’s World Amateur Road Cycling Championships in Denmark after impressive performances at the inaugural Tour of Cambridgeshire.
The two-day event staged a 28km Time Trial on the Saturday and a 130km road race event on the Sunday, with both events acting as qualifiers for the World Amateur Road Cycling Championships later this year.
Mark Constable qualified for both the World Championships TT and road race, with Justin Layne, James McKenzie, Anthony Morris, Barron Mendelssohn and Jane Wilson making up six of the eight qualifiers.
From seven Ashwell riders, McKenzie rode a superb time to take second position in the 60-64 category. Layne was the fastest CCA rider, taking eighth position in age category and 18th position overall. Constable took 28th position in his age category.
The following day saw 17 Ashwell riders line up for the Gran Fondo - an event totaling almost 5,000 participants from across the country.
