Former Dave Rayner Fund beneficiary Alex Wise won the final race of the Maldon and District CC's first open track meeting of recent years, pipping Jack Gibson by a narrow margin.
Now returned from the continent, Wise works as Bike Club Youth Development Officer in nearby Colchester, generating interest in cycling in schools.
Gibson is a Maldon member studying in Wales and currently racing in the colours of Cardiff Ajax. Other Maldon members featuring in the meeting at the Lower Plume School included George Wood with several Youth wins and his mother Sue Wood with the biggest share of wins in the women's races, though Maldon's Rebecca Hammond took the three-lap handicap.
The CC Ashwell contingent was spearheaded by Andrew Leverton who won the 800m scratch final. Sid Charlton (King's Cliffe Flyers) dominated the tricycle events, though Martin Badham (CC Breckland) took the trike handicap.
