Welwyn Wheelers’ youth riders were out in force at the Milton Keynes Bowl circuit races on Saturday.

Oli Stockwell was sixth in the U16 event with Joe Bennett ninth plus Archie Peet and Jamie Dene in the main bunch.

In the U14 race Tom Sharples finished fourth just losing by half a wheel for third in the bunch sprint.

Joe Kiely was seventh and Euan Woodliffe eighth. Rupert Cavill took second place in the U10 race.

In the girls’ age group races were Lauren Higham sixth (U16), Ellen Bennett fifth (U14) and Beth Bennett sixth (U12).

Also on Saturday, the Wheelers hosted the last race in the Muddy Monsters Cyclo-cross Series at WGC’s Gosling Sports Park.

Sixty young riders competed in the three age group races.

It is an excellent series for young new cyclo- cross riders.

On Sunday Stockwell and Kiely competed in a mountain bike event at Wasing Park and both won their events.

The final round of the London Winter Track League at Stratford saw Euan Woodliffe finish second in the youth group three series.
