MOUNTAIN BIKE RACING FOR ELY RIDERS
Riders of all ages from the Ely & District Cycling Club - B&T Motor Repairs took part in mountain bike races at the weekend. Junior rider Ollie Sinden was racing downhill in the second race of the 100% Minidownhill series at the Forest of Dean. Ollie's first run went well, leaving him in 4th place and less than a second behind the rider in 3rd place.
