Barkstone Heath Circuit Races, the under-10/under-12 race saw Welland’s Fay and Matt Garner both ride well.
At u14/u16 level Jade and Ria Mobbs went clear of the rest of the girls and eventually sprinted for a photo finish. Jade got the nod and Ria took second girl.
Louis Killworth was in the lead group but couldn’t follow the first three when they attacked. He rode off of the front of the chasing group and time trialled round for much of the race to take fourth. James Garratt managed to stay in the main u16 group to take seventh.
In the 4th cat race, Adrian Killworth failed to stay with the leading bunch, but ended up in a chasing bunch of up to 12 riders. This developed into a race within a race where the first objective was not to get lapped. Killworth sprinted to third in the group, well behind the lead bunch but he was not lapped.
