After having to cancel the previous weeks meeting due to rain, the latest round of the Brooks Cycles Track League, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire was held under warm sunny skies. With the holiday season well under way, it was pleasing to see a good turnout of riders across all four groups of riders.

The sprinters group was well attended with 9 riders competing in the three sprint specific races. In the 500m handicap league World Masters Champion Geoff Cooke, Bush Healthcare RT, took a great win from a fast closing group of riders headed by Joel Partington, Lyme RC and Ellie Coster Bush Healthcare RT.

The Team Sprint event saw all three teams only separated by less that 3/4 of a second with the win going to Ellie Coster, Joel Partington, and Sean Mayer Swinnerton Cycles. The Keirin Final saw league leader Sean Mayer win in fine style from Ryan Whatmough, Shepherd Cycles and Steve Cronshaw Brooks Cycles.

The A Class endurance events saw some hard racing with the opening 10 lap scratch going to Joe Evans, Velocity RT and the 12 lap points race being won by last years league champion Robert Lambton, Brooks Cycles. In the devil Paul Whatmough, Shepherds Cycles won in a close finish from his son Ryan. The final 10 mile scratch event saw loads of attacking throughout with Andy Leigh, Velocity RT jumping away from the bunch with 6 laps to go and holding on impressively to take the win.

The B races were well supported with the wins being spread across a number of riders. The opening 8 lap scratch was won by Matthew Walls, Velocity RT before Max Gethin, Glebe House Coalport RC flew out of the pack to win the Win and Out event from another first time rider at the Newcastle Track Robert Standing, Team V Sprint Racing. The ten mile scratch saw only four B group riders make the finish with last years league winner Alex Webb, Lyme RC taking a well deserved win.

Sallie Birchall, Lyme RC showed she is recovering well from a recent ankle injury as she won three individual events in the youth races and was also a member of the winning team sprint quartet. Joe Swinnerton also scored well in taking second places in the 200m time trial and devil along with a third place in the 5 lap scratch.

The Freewheelers tends to take a drop in numbers at this time of year however there was a great turnout of 26 riders for the latest round of racing across the three groups. With five new riders the number of registered riders is now up to 57 and if the weather holds we could be on to break last years record number of 64. The night was a Go Ride night with medals awarded to the top three riders in each group. The medal winners were as follows;

Group 1 Gold Sam Hall Silver James Brayford Bronze Brandon McMillan
Group 2 Gold Farley Barber Silver Chloe Tennant Bronze Thomas Hughes
Group 3 Gold Mark Adamson Silver Jessica Hughes Bronze Izaak Curtis
