Velo-One rider Matt Elworthy returned to Milton Keynes Bowl for round four of the March Criterium Series last weekend.

Previous rounds had seen him finish just outside of his aims of a top-10 place.

Experience of racing the circuit enabled Elworthy to position himself at the front of the race and come away with a sixth-place finish and 
valuable British Cycling points towards his season goal of moving up the racing rider categories.

Meanwhile, Neil Palmer and Paul Hutchinson started their road race season in round one of the Velo99 Road Series.

A handicap race saw Palmer and Hutchinson start in the last (scratch) group.

Despite not being able to catch the leading group, Palmer and Hutchinson finished sixth and ninth in their group respectively.
