El­li­son slips to third

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
