She also pushed club chairman Barry Archer very hard in the Senior Off-Road Championship, forcing him to share the award that he won outright in 2008!

The winners of the Hill Climb and Grass-Track Championships were no surprise. Former National 8km Grass-Track Champion, Max Pendleton comfortably saw off younger members Keith Richardson and Sarra Boyd on the track at last year's Mildenhall Cycling Rally. Then on Primrose Hill in Moulton the father of Olympic champion Victoria Pendleton had a clear ten-second margin ahead of his closest rival Richard Carrington. The latter though was the fastest club member over 10 and 25 miles.

There was a very welcome return of Anthony Preece to the competitive arena in 2009 and he was rewarded by becoming the Senior Cyclo-Cross Championship.

It is very pleasing that Mildenhall CC is once again, as a result of it's Go-Ride programme, starting to attract younger members. One of those Adam Gough was the Youth Cyclo-Cross and Grass-Track champ.
