Declan Higgins continued his good form of late by scoring a great 3rd place at Eelmore last Wednesday evening in the Youths Race. Gavin Mitchell also collected more points with a well-earned 6th position in the 3/4 battle - Click Here for a report.
The Twickenham were represented by Gavin Mitchell, Rob Drinkwater and Dave Jack.
It was Kierin night at Reading and Rob did a great ride in his heat, leaving all of his other competitors behind, to get through to the final. In the next heat were Gavin and Dave. Gavin managed to get behind the Derny but once the derny pulled off World Master Sprint Champion Lee Povey and Co flew past, he finished fourth in the heat Dave finishing sixth.
In the Kierin Final Rob had a good start but got passed by Lee Povey and Sam Serruya in the final moments to finish third.
In the 20k Dave went for one of he usual early attacks taking three others with him. Gavin did a turn on the front and as he was trying to get back into the string, attacks when in, he got caught in between groups and couldn’t get back on, so decided to pack in. Dave couldn’t keep up the pace and eventually pulled out.
