Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -


RUN­NERUP: Neil El­li­son Pic­ture: Richard Howes n WEST Dray­ton Mountain Bike Club’s Steve Heat­ley en­joyed a ca­reer-best fin­ish this week – and it might have been even bet­ter.

Heat­ley fin­ished sec­ond and was beaten by inches in the Eastern Road race af­ter a big bunch sprinted for glory.

In more good news for WDMBC, Neil El­li­son fin­ished run­ner-up in the Cen­tral Cross League fol­low­ing the 17th and fi­nal round of the se­ries.

El­li­son was not at his best in the one-hour race, fin­ish­ing fifth, but that proved enough to move him up from third to sec­ond over­all, a great re­ward for his sea­son’s ef­forts.

Club­mate Jorge Manso fin­ished 14th in the fi­nale to move up to 13th in the stand­ings while an­other West Dray­ton rider, Sean Downey, fin­ished 37th over­all.
