WD MOUN­TAIN BIKE CLUB

A RE­CENT bout of ill­ness caught up with West Dray­ton Moun­tain Bike Club’s Neil El­li­son at the na­tional Cy­clo-Cross Cham­pi­onships.

El­li­son was away well and mix­ing it with the coun­try’s top rac­ers on the first cir­cuit at Peel Park in Brad­ford but with lower en­ergy lev­els than usual, after be­ing un­well over Christ­mas, he even­tu­ally fin­ished 40th.

Nearer home, both Paul Ben­nett and Steve Heat­ley rep­re­sented WDMBC at Hilling­don Road in the Im­pe­rial rac­ing event, but de­spite be­ing in the main pack, they were un­placed in the sprint fin­ish.
