12:36pm Thursday 1st August 2013 in Sport
FORMER Halesowen Cycling Club member Matt Clarke produced his best performance since joining elite team Wheelbase Altura MGD by coming home in 27th spot at the Ryedale Grand Prix.
Clarke was competing in his fourth race for the Wheelbase Altura team.
In what proved the last of the Premier Calendar Series, Clarke found the hilly terrain around Ampleforth in North Yorkshire tough going but dug deep to prove the first Wheelbase Altura rider home.
Meanwhile, several of Clarke’s former Halesowen team-mates were out in force at the 40 mile Peter Biddle Memorial Roace Race.
Halesowen paraded a five strong team of Tom Gregory, Ben Crone, Daymian Underhill, Sam Green and Jason Day.
