A talented teenage cyclist from Keighley was invited to meet the winning team at a race in aid of SportsAid.

Alfie Moses, 16, currently ranked third in the UK in youth cyclo-cross, was one of the guests of honour at the Yorkshire Classic at the start of this month.

More than 170 cyclists took part in a demanding 67-mile pursuit organised by Yorkshire law firm Lupton Fawcett Denison Till.

The race started at Ilkley Rugby Club, ventured into the Dales where it picked up the Tour de France route before heading back to the club along the River Wharfe.

Lupton Fawcett Denison Till chairman, Kevin Emsley, said: “It was a magnificent turnout to help raise money for SportsAid, which funds rising sports stars, helping them achieve their ambitions to be the best in the world.

“We were particularly pleased to have Alfie Moses here. We all wish him the best of luck for the future, and we will be watching his cycling career with interest.”
