Miller earns top 20 place in cross epic

Nathan Miller, winner of the first round of the Eastern League, travelled to toughest cyclo-cross of all - the 37 mile classic Three Peaks event in the Yorkshire Dales.

The XRT/Elmy Cycles rider took 20th place – out of 480 finishers, finishing in 3:29:44.

His hard riding brought him home 6:17 ahead of another Eastern League regular, Greg Simcock (Team Corley Cycles), who was 35th.

Several Suffolk riders featured in the National Track Championships at the Manchester Velodrome.

The steep banking can have held few fears for West Suffolk Wheeler Donna Williams – she is a former Millennium Dome trapeze artist.

Donna was 14th in the 500 metre time trial and was part of teams that were 6th in the team sprint and bronze medallists in the team pursuit.

Emilie Fisher (Orbea/For Goodness Shakes) was 9th fastest in the individual pursuit while Nino Piccoli (Team Pedal Revolution) was 12th fastest in the men’s pursuit.
