Alfie Aldridge got things going with a success in the U16 race at the Central Cyclo-cross League event in Leighton Buzzard, following up his victory at Hemel one week earlier.

He said: “The course was flat and fast with lots of long straights which gave me an advantage as I was able to comfortably power away from the other riders.

“By the end I had a decent lead to take the win.

“I’m looking forward to racing at Whipsnade this weekend and trying to make it three in a row.”

Alarik Knox got the team’s second appearance on the top step of the podium in the U10 race.

They also managed a fourth for John Jones in the V50 category and a sixth for Matt Watson in the juniors while Tom Martin was third junior in the Eastern League.

Back on the road Jared Millar took the title ahead of Will Smith at the Verulam CC hill climb.
