St Ives Cycling Club talent Kenna powered round the Amis Velo Hilly Fields Supacross circuit in Colchester to triumph in the Under 12 Girls category. Clubmate Nathan Gibson finished eighth in the Junior Male section at the same event.

A host of other St Ives riders took part in the ninth round of the Central Region League at RAF Halton in Buckinghamshire.

And not even mid-race punctures could prevent Beatrice Pauley (Under 14 Girls) and Cecilia Hime (Junior Female) from claiming podium finishes with super second places.

Dominic Pauley just missed out on the podium when fourth in the Under 12 Boys bracket and Ralf Falkner took fifth place at Under 14 Boys level.
