Ulster Cross Country Series Round2 – Ballykelly.

Yesterday Sunday the 6th April saw the second round of this years Ulster cross country series in Ballykelly. Conditions on an already fairly technical course were made worse by the previous days rain evident in the number of buckled wheels in practice.
The lakeland riders were racing in the S3 category in a field of over 40 riders. A few spills on the first lap meant Brian Kellett had to fight his way back up through the riders eventually finishing in 24th place. Peter Jones had a solid ride finishing just outside the points in 21st. But ride of the day for Lakeland was Raymond Kerr who battled all through the race at the front eventually finishing in second place.

Mountain Biking 2013 Roundup

2013 saw Lakeland cc represented at every round of the Ulster and Irish cross country mountain bike race series and also at the Ulster Championships and Irish Championships. And the results reflected the hard work put in by the guys.

Peter Jones led the team taking 9th overall in a very competitive Ulster series in the senior 3 category with Brian Kellett close behind in 12th and Raymond Kerr taking 19th place. Julian Dunlop finished 26th overall and only for a series of unfortunate mechanicals would have finished much higher. Brian Kellett also finished the Irish nationals in the masters category in 22nd place and 10th place in the Ulster Championships.

2014 will hopefully prove to be another good year for the clubs mountain bikers.
