The hard work from the volunteers of Welwyn Wheelers to put on a fabulous Eastern & Central Region Cyclo-cross Championship was repaid by some excellent results from their talented squad.

A total of 430 riders took part in the Stanborough Park event across a number of age groups, ranging from eight up to 50 plus.

The course had to be set up on Saturday and then dismantled after the last race on Sunday.

Joe Kiely's battle with former team-mate Oli Stockwell in the junior men's race was the highlight, the latter taking the win ahead of Kiely with Archie Peet in eighth.

Ethan Storti was a winner in the U14 event with Millie Coleman claiming third girl.
