Ellison slips to third
WEST Drayton Mountain Bike Club’s Neil Ellison enjoyed a bittersweet day in the latest round of the Central Racing Series.
Ellison made a superb start and led the field only for a mechanical failure to delay him and he eventually finished third. That did, however, cement his place in the top three of the series overall.
He wasn’t only West Drayton club member to suffer disappointment in the race as Jorge Manso slipped off on a particularly muddy corner before finishing 25th.
On the roads, Steve Heatley showed good sprinting speed to finish fifth at Lea Valley, his best result of the season so far.
Away from the action, members called in at their 2016 chosen charity, the Harefield Dogs Trust, on Saturday to present a cheque for £220 raised at last year’s road sportive.
