Bug hits rider’s placing
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.
