There was another podium place at the 10th round of the Central League in Buckinghamshire thanks to Beatrice Pauley.

She powered to second place in the Under 16 Girls race at Swambourne House School and brother Dominic survived two crashes to take ninth at Under 14 Boys level.

St Ives enjoyed further success in the opening round of the Muddy Monsters Go Ride series of North Cambs.
