CYCLING: Flying start to season
Velo-One Cycling Team are aiming to replicate the success of last year across multiple disciplines.
Neil Palmer raced in round one of the Velo99 Handicap Road Series.
Starting in group six (scratch), he rode strongly from the start – breaking away early and putting a two-minute gap before taking the group win.
Roland Kiraly and Matt Elworthy travelled to Darley Moor Circuit, Derbyshire, to compete in round three of the March Madness Road Series.
In the British Cycling Category 3 and 4 race, Kiraly took a second-place finish.
Elworthy finished in the peloton in the British Cycling Category E, 1, 2 & 3 race.
Both riders are aiming for the Category 2 British Cycling Race Licence.
