WOODROFFE WINS ONCE AGAIN

Ely & District Cycling Club - B&T Motor Repairs Press Release 4th August 2021


Ely Junior rider Harvey Woodroffe continued his excellent form in off-road circuit racing this year at a grasstrack event at Hertford on Sunday. 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 the Ely & District Cycling Club - B&T Motor Repairs to take part in a 12 mile time trial organised by Islington CC 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 7th place overall.
