xSPEEDY Jack Ravenscoft stormed to victory in the Youth/Juvenile race at Top Barn mountain bike meeting at Worcester last Sunday.

His was one of two victories celebrated by Solihull Cycling Club, Jake Stewart in the Under 12s grabbing top spot at the National Youth Series meeting in Milton Keynes while Harvey Wadsworth took second in the sprint in the Under 14s.

At the other end of the age scale, Solihull CC’s veterans team tackled the Wyre Forest CRC Vets Race and despite wet conditions, Kevin Wilson, Ian Cowan and David Rutherford all tried hard to get breaks going on what was a flat course.

Unluckily, Wilson punctured early in race three but Cowan eventually finished in the main bunch of race two with Rutherford fifth in race three.

Meanwhile the time triallists were out on the A41 Warwick Road for a 10 mile test.

Tandem riders Matt Pursehouse and Richard Evans of Warwick RC recorded the night’s fastest time of 21m 41s at an average 27.67mph. Fastest solo ride was by Solihull CC’s Conor O’Brien at 22m 09s, with Eddy Priddy 24 secs back in second and Adnam Saithna third at 46secs.
