Muddy Hell

A spooky night at Herne Hill saw Jake Carter, Felix & Callum Mackie, James Ambrose-Parish, Georg Jensen and James Madgwick braving the ghouls and the ghosts as they raced on the newly refurbished velodrome and around the woods. James Madgwick raced superbly to come second in the U16s and Georg had a close battle to come 3rd in the U14s, with Callum 4th.
