Local cyclist at national event

Somerset County Gazette: Joe West at the Milton Keynes national youth series race Joe West at the Milton Keynes national youth series race

Local under 14 cyclist Joseph West, from Haygrove school, raced this weekend at part of a national series of races at Milton Keynes.

This was Joes first race at a national level and after getting caught behind a couple of early accidents fought his way back into the leading group and then went off the front to lead the last lap until the final 50m where he was caught by the chasing group. A strong first attempt at national level racing.

Joseph is also lying in 3rd place in the southern region track (velodrome) series with one more meet to go. If he can hold on to this position the national finals at Welwyn Gargen City will be next .
