Ely & District junior rider Harvey Woodroffe continued his excellent form in off-road circuit racing this year at a grasstrack event in Hertford.
The racing, organised by Green Arrow CRT, was set up as an omnium-style event with racers taking part in different disciplines of track racing.
In the first event, a one lap time trial, Woodroffe finished in second place, but in each of the other three events - an elimination race, a handicap race and a scratch race - Woodroffe won the event, giving him first place overall.
The day before, Derek Ricketts was the sole rider from Ely & District Cycling Club - B&T Motor Repairs to take part in a 12-mile time trial on the F14/12 course near Guilden Morden.
Despite starting off dry, Ricketts ended up riding the second half of the race in torrential rain. Ricketts' reward for persevering despite the atrocious conditions was a time of 28:16 which gave him seventh place overall.
