Clubmate Fearne Starr competed strongly to take second in the girls Under 10 category and Louis Cipriani continues to improve and finished in sixth place - also in the Under 10 section.

The new year started with the club’s traditional new year 10-mile time trial, and on this occasion just 11 riders took to the startline.
