Five Ely & District Cycling Club members took part in the sixth round of the Eastern League Cyclocross season.

It took place at Stanborough Park in Welwyn Garden City on Sunday.

Despite the heavy rain, which made the grassy course very heavy going for the riders, five Ely & District Cycling Club - B&T Motor Repairs riders took part in the race.

In the Under 12s Kieran Vanhoutte had one of his best results of the season so far finishing in 15th place.

In the Under 14s race Isaac Barton finished in 28th place.
