Cyclo-cross specialist Tom Martin was fifth junior and 11th senior at the Eastern League Cyclo-cross Series at Writtle College despite his chain coming off.

Martin said “l didn’t like the course at first but got into it later in the race. I’m in a battle now for third place overall and if I get a half decent result next week I will get it.”

At the same event John Jones celebrated another podium with third in the V50 race and Liz McKie took fifth place in the vet women.

Meanwhile, in road racing, the team had early season success at Hillingdon.
