Wood was the winner of the Under 8 Girls section at Hinchingbrooke School last Saturday with fellow St Ives rider Emmie Cox finishing second. Zoe Kenna just missed out on the podium when fourth.

But there was a clean sweep for St Ives at Under 12 Boys level as Conway pedalled to glory and was followed home by Aaron O’Connor and Jacob Wood.

Samuel Smith (2nds) and Ralph Bicknell (3rd) provided more podium finishers in the Under 10 Boys contest.

The growing strength of St Ives Cycling Club was also evident last Sunday thanks to their largest entry of riders in a National Trophy event.
