Melton Olympic Cycling Club held their Melton-Buckminster-Melton time trial on Sunday.

Results: Steve Savage 39.50, Andy Lear 44.46. VC Rutland, Paul Slater 45.55. VC Rutland, Steve King 47.15, Gary Ison 47.49, John Atkin 48.58, Mark Saunders 50.50, David Anderson 54.16.

The next event is the Hill Climb at Harby Hill on Sunday, with the first rider off at 11am.

Last Thursday Longfield Academy was the venue for the Melton Meteors Go-Race Cross on a beautiful Autumn evening.

Twenty-five enthusiastic youngsters signed up for this off-road challenge.

Conditions were made more difficult as the evening wore on and the grass became damp and slick on the corners.

The riders all had three races, six laps for under 12s, four laps for under 10s and a one-lap sprint challenge and a relay race.

Results: U10 boys - 1 Toby Allison, 2 Jack-Stanley Winder, 3 Zak Roberts; U10 girls - 1 Caitlin McCahon, 2 Beatrix Clemans, 3 Scarlett Kerr; 10 and over boys - 1 Ivan Underwood, 2 Jamie London, 3 Dylan Silk; 10 and over girls - 1 Eleanor Taylor, 2 Lucy Swain, 3 Claudia Clemans.
