Five riders represented Cycle Club Ashwell at the first round of the National Youth Track Omnium at Welwyn’s outdoor track on Sunday.

The level of competition was high with riders from all over the London region attending.

Most riders had five races: a time-trial to start, followed by an elimination, scratch, sprint and finishing with a points race.

The club had a fantastic day, with Sophie Lewis finishing on the podium as third U14 girl, Mark Lightfoot was third in the U10s, Freddie Cooke was 14th out of a large, strong U12 boys’ group, Holly Proctor eighth in U16s, and Adam Lightfoot 12th in the U14s.

CCA’s young stars were also in action an the Hackney CC youth circuit racing at London’s Olympic VeloPark.

Mark Lightfoot had a quick final sprint to take second place in the U8/10 race with Joseph Hadsley close behind in fifth position.
