Two of the Verulam Reallymoving cycling squad took off for warmer climes as they tackled the four-stage Tour of Malta.
Rachel and Steve Dunn had to face a strong field but after four days of great racing, Steve was 11th and Rachel 12th overall.
Rachel said: “What a great event. I got my best result of the tour with seventh on stage three which was a flat 43km road race on a closed bypass.
“The wind meant a hard slog one way and a fast and furious dash back the other way.
“The final stage was the longest so far with a big climb. I lost touch with the leaders at the end of lap one and ended up 12th but Steve managed to win the bunch sprint for ninth.”
