Rutland’s women have dominated the Thetford Forest winter mountain bike series with Amelia Cambridge clinching the overall crown on Sunday.

Cambridge won three of the four monthly races, with fellow Velo Club Rutland rider Rebecca Cunnell taking the other round.

The final race of the BikeArt Winter Series, on Sunday, was raced in bone dry conditions leading to a fast and competitive race.

Cunnell said: “The organisers had put together a great course, which for the relatively flat area of Thetford Forest, was made to feel incredibly hilly with some punishing ascents followed by some very fun and fast descents.”

None of this bothered Cambridge, who won the 18-39 ladies category with Cunnell seventh in the final round. Richard Atkins was 38th in the male 18-39 category.

Other riders who took part in the series included Andy Hart, Marcus Partridge and Jonny Lloyd.
