Report: Royal London 360 Isle of Man’s Youth League

Dot Tilbury reports … Round 8 of Team Royal London 360 Isle of Man’s youth league was staged at the NSC last Tuesday night in cold but mainly dry conditions.

With many of the regular competitors on holiday off-island to escape the disruption caused by the annual TT motorcycle races, there was a reduced entry of 176 competitors for the event, which was being filmed by the BBC for a feature on Breakfast TV.

Peter Lloyd took the honours for the fifth time in the novices class. Rebecca Walmsley beat Archie Dunn and Jemma Quayle to the line for second place, with Lisa Martin and Sophie Keen trailing in separately for fifth and sixth. Rebecca Cooil pipped Ethan Griffiths for seventh and Eddy Dillon stayed clear of the chasing pack to grab ninth. Maria Moore completed the top ten leader board.

In the born 2006 & later category Zachary Dowson rode away from the field to score a fine solo victory ahead of Ivan Sorby, who edged out Corey Peters, Cian Jackson and Drystan Sewell for second. Ryan Edwards held off Harry Callin and Alfie Swales in the dash for sixth, with Sophie Smith leading Hollie Palmer home to claim the girls’ prize in ninth spot.

An injection of pace on the final lap gave Harry Kneen a comfortable win over breakaway partners Niall Colquitt and Mairi Harrison in the born 2005 event. Oliver Corkish got the better of Bradley Kneen in the battle for fourth and Chloe Dillon grabbed sixth ahead of Harvey Coole.

Zac Walker rode Dillon Dowson off his wheel to bag maximum points in the born 2004 age group. Joshua Dudley escaped from the main bunch to take third, with twin brother Cameron outsprinting James Devereau, Toby Craig, Adam Price and Daniel Keen in the gallop for fourth. Kiera Prentice was the first girl in 17th place.

Percy Hampton was too strong for fellow frontrunners Jake Wilson, Jonty Bregazzi and Jack Christian in the final stages of the born 2003 race. Thomas Skillicorn was a lonely fifth and Matthew Black got away from travelling companion Jamie Gelling to snatch sixth. Leading girl Darcy Cain passed Ryan Quirk on the final circuit to claim eighth and Ramsey’s Tyler Hannay got the verdict over Jack Collister and Thomas Young in the dash for tenth.

Notching up his seventh success in the born 2000 class, Aaron Lund powered ahead of Will Corkill and James Harrison on the finishing straight to further cement his position at the top of the overall standings. Blae Cain, who lost contact with the leaders on the penultimate lap, was a safe fourth ahead of Nathanael Tyson and Joshua Mills.

In the born 2001 three lapper Tosh Teare came from behind to snatch victory from Max Walker. Juan Kneen was third and fourth placed Emma Draper took the girls’ award one position ahead of Chloe Crellin. In the following born 2000 & earlier grouping Matthew Draper went from the gun and never looked like being caught. Sam Mills outsprinted Sam Batey, Tara Ferguson, Lucas Mudie, Alex Cain and Kaitlin Slack for the runners-up spot.

Charlie Gibson was the eventual winner of the under 10 racing bikes, taking the chequered flag by the narrowest of margins from Max Walker and Conor Gelling, who were second and third respectively. Jake Wilson was the best under 8 rider in seventh position and Chloe Crellin the top girl in eleventh place. Five riders fought over the spoils in the under 12 racing bikes, with William Draper taking the final sprint from Conor Davies, Thomas Bostock, Eleanor Davies and Sam Batey.

In the final race of the night, the under 16 racing bikes, British Cycling Talent Team member Jake Kelly had the edge on Jamie Dudley and Josh Knights in the dart for the chequered flag. Matthew Davies took fourth from Leon Mazzone and Nathan Draper, with Andrew Reeday leading the chasers in for seventh. Anna Christian was the top girl in 13th place.
