The St Ives Cycling Club member was the second Under 14 Girls competitor in the eighth round of the Eastern Region League at Bury St Edmunds last Saturday.

A total of 16 riders from St Ives Cycling Club took part in the latest Eastern League round.

Cecilia Hime continued her fine run of form with second place at Junior Female level, while Orla Kenna (Under 12 Girls) and Sapphire Curtis (Under 14 Girls) only just missed out on podium places of their own when finishing fourth in their respective age groups.

Ralf Falkner (seventh, Under 14 Boys), Dominic Pauley (seventh, Under 12 Boys), Andy Fountain (seventh, Veteran 50+ Male), Joshua Ibbett (10th, Senior Male) and Nathan Gibson (10th, Junior Male) also achieved top-10 placings.

Other results: Max Falkner (14th, Under 16 Boys), Angus Lawrence (18th, Under 16 Boys), Ollie Maynard (20th, Under 16 Boys), Nick Smith (35th, Veteran Male), Mick Curtis (55th, Veteran 50+ Male).
