East Tyrone schoolgirl Ellie Kelso is the overall winner of the Ulster MTB X/C League after winning the final round in the Under 12 Girls Category at Craigavon Lakes on Sunday.

Neil Kelso finished well in the Under 10 Boys Event and Leslie Mitchell, Keith Warwick and Paul Kelso were all in action in the Senior 4 race.

Under 16 Schoolboy Harvey Barnes was on the Ulster team at the UK Schools Games held at the World famous Manchester Velodrome at the weekend. The Ulster team rode well considering their preparation is curtailed somewhat owing to having no indoor velodrome in Ireland.
