Cyclists race on Olympics track in Mud Gears series
Aerocycles and Haverhill Cycling Club’s mountain biking team got to experience an Olympic venue when riding in round four of the Mud, Sweat and Gears series.
The newly-opened Hadleigh Park track, which staged races for the London 2012 Olympics, provided a challenging setting for the Haverhill riders.
In the veterans category, Nick Ainsworth had a six-lap battle to gain another third-place podium finish, while team-mate Steve Foster managed to do four laps after suffering a big crash on his practise lap.
Haverhill’s Oliver Skyrme claimed seventh in the under-9s category, while Austin Ainsworth took fifth, four-year-old Eva Ainsworth finished seventh and Alan Gardner completed the course in 11th.
