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.
