The ever changing summer weather this year has been a feature of the Brooks Cycles Track League, Newcastle under Lyme, Staffs with this week seeing the sun shining with temperatures in the high 70’s. The success of the British Olympic Team is having a huge effect on the Freewheelers attending each week with this week seeing the registered number of riders hitting a record 66 which is good for the future. All races in the Freewheelers League were contested keenly by all riders with plenty of personal best times in the opening flying 200m time trial. After the 12 race programme the top points scorers in each group were as follows;

Group 1 Ewan Giles 6 Points
Group 2 Farley Barber 9 Points
Group 3 Harry Boulton 7 points

In the A Class events Talent Team Rider Joe Evans ( Velocity RT) showed his form is starting to build for the end of the month Youth Track Nationals as he won the devil and placed second in the 8 lap scratch and third in the points race. 2011 Champion Robert Lambton ( Brooks Cycles) used is finishing sprint to easily win the opening 8 lap scratch. Other wins went to Paul Whatmough ( Shepherds Cycles) in the points race and to National Masters Champion James Notley who took a very quick 10 mile scratch. The B events saw Matthew Walls ( Velocity RT) dominate the four races to take maxium points and he now looks favourite for the B league trophy with four event remaining.
