Mountain Bike Racing

Round 3 of the Five by Three MTB race series rolled into Eccles Hall School near Snetterton in Norfolk on Sunday.

Despite the harsh conditions elsewhere over the weekend, 5 riders from West Suffolk Wheelers & Triathlon Club enjoyed a relatively dry and fast flowing course albeit flint covered in parts.

Sadly, the senior members (Will Smith, Dick Lines and Richard Holland-Jones) suffered a variety of mechanical problems with the flint in particular causing a number of punctures forcing their early withdrawal.

However, junior riders Robin Lines and Rhys Holland-Jones acquitted themselves well in the Under 16 event, Robin finishing 10th (6 laps in 49:46) and Rhys 11th (5/38:36).
