East Tyrone Cycling Club youth riders, Ellie Kelso and Harvey Barnes, both had good wins on an excellent weekend for their club.

Ellie produced a brilliant performance to retain the Overall Under 12 Girls Spring League MTB Series after taking second place in the final round at Ormeau Park Belfast.

Ellie’s brother Neil placed third in the final round to take third Overall in the Under10 Boys League.

Senior club members Leslie Mitchell and Keith Warwick had strong finishes in the supporting (B) event.

Meanwhile Harvey Barnes got his season off to the best possible start with an impressive win in the Under 16 Event in Sunday,s opening round of the Errigal Youth League in County Donegal.

This is Harvey’s first season as an Under 16 and he has obviously carried his form over from last season when he was a revelation in his first competitive year as an Under 14.
