King’s Lynn MTB Club
Mud, Sweat and Gears Round 6, Ickworth
Dominating the Grand Veterans category again was Paul Ashby, finishing a lap ahead of the second place rider.
James Murphy, rested from his holiday, produced his best mountain biking result for the series.
Emily Quantrill made it a win double, finishing first in her category of Sport Female and second overall, and is getting stronger with each race.
Round six saw 14 Lynn MTB riders enter on what they thought was going to be a glorious day. The heavens opened just as the racing started, and it then turned into a race of skills and attrition.
All the club members who raced are gaining confidence and strength as seen in their results.

KL MTB Club Shouldham Warren Time Trial series: The conditions for round three were almost ideal – the trails were just damp but firm; the air was cool.
Round four was totally different, with the trails very dry with loose debris on top, plus the temperature in the forest was 30 degrees, testing the riders to extremes with their skills and fitness.
