The National Trophy cyclo-cross series made a very welcome return for 2021 on Saturday, back at its traditional location for round 1 at the Moorways Stadium in Derby – a fast course in hot conditions.

Leon Atkins asserted himself in the U14 boys race taking an early lead on lap 1 after being gridded back in 34th place, holding onto a lead of 30 seconds all the way to the finish line. Oliver Beale also had a great race finishing in 7th place just a minute behind with sister Isabel finishing 18th in the girls category. In the U16 girls race Lucy Allsop had a solid top 20 place.

The following day a big squad of Wheelers of all ages competed at the Central CX league round 2 at MK Bowl with wins for Marley Aldwinkle, Savannah Sykes and Daniel Elliott.
