COLCHESTER cycle race team Amis Velo welcomed back Mark Wellsted for the third round of the Travers Mountain Bike Series.

The event was held at Potash Woods, in Rochford.

Wellsted was making a return to racing after suffering a knee injury while competing in the 922km Italy Divide race.

It provided a good test of fitness and form, with Wellsted finishing fifth after starting at the rear of the starting grid.
