A large number of Cycle Club Ashwell youth riders visited Ixworth for racing last weekend.

In the U10s, Joseph Hadsley, Mark Lightfoot and Samuel Quiggin all found themselves chasing a breakaway.

As they hit the line, Hadsley’s final sprint propelled him into second place with Lightfoot in eighth and Quiggin 10th.

A massive field of 50 riders lined up for the U12s with Freddie Cooke and Nathan Hardy working well together in a chasing group behind the leaders, finally finishing within the main pack.

In the U14’s race, Adam Lightfoot and Felix Field were both racing. Lightfoot started on the front row, and was able to stay with the lead group once the race begun. With 4 laps to go, 2 riders went clear with Adam sitting in the bunch. On the back straight Adam decided to jump clear and to try and reel in the 2 up ahead however, his attack was chased down after 1 lap and finally crossed the line in 10th place. Field had a solid race staying with the main group as the pace hotted up and finished the race within the bunch.

Joseph Hadsley was again in action at the ECCA championship at Hog Hill. The race followed a familiar pattern with Hadsley making the first selection but missing out on the split halfway through. At the finish a sprint for 4th place meant a well-earned silver medal in the ECCA championship.

Cumbria was host to the 4th round of the National Time Trial Series were James McKenzie and Jackie Field were racing as part of the RTTC Classic Series. Despite terrible conditions, McKenzie placed 7th on target time and Field was a superb 2nd lady veteran.
