Sterling Smith and Philip Bingham put in strong performances in the Under 10, with Florence Barnett comfortably winning the U10 girls’ race.

In the U14 race, Tye Rugg put in a strong start racing with the main bunch, before dropping back. Bethany Barnett put in a stellar ride – her best of the season – and won the U14 girls category.

Go-Ride coach Ray Barnett entered the “Go Race” category. A tactical error saw him spending too long riding at the front of the bunch resulting in a third place in the final sprint.

If you feel inspired by watching the Tour de France, there will be a series of holiday clubs in both Lynn and Downham (10am-noon and 1pm-3pm).

Dates: at the cricket pavilion at Lynnsport on August 4, 8 and 15, with Tour De France and Olympic themed events; at Downham Memorial Field on August 10, 17 and 24.
