Welwyn Wheelers organised round two of the South East Youth Omnium with well over 100 riders competing at Gosling Stadium.

Riders competed in five different events and the points scored in each race were added together to decide the final positions.

The standard and quality of racing in the U16 boys was the best of the day with all events run at a frantic pace.

Oli Stockwell was ninth, Archie Peet 15th and Joe Bennett 16th for Welwyn.

Josie Griffin and Imogen Chastell were third and fourth in the U16 girls, places repeated by Joe Kiely and Euan Woodliffe in the U14 boys where Tom Sharples also finished sixth.

Ellen Bennett was seventh in the girls series.

Thomas Dixon just missed out on a top three position in the U12 boys where Dylan Starkey was fifth, Corman Nisbet 11th and Thomas Oliver 12th.

Kiely also rode the Hadleigh Mountain Bike event and finished first.
