Report – Mid-Summers Open Track Meet

In the sponsored Sprinters League, local rider Sean Mayer of Swinnerton Cycles did a blistering ride in the qualification 200m Time Trial to post the fastest time in the competition with a 11.0 sec ride beating a number of full time GB riders.

Unfortunately a slight tactical error saw Sean finishing 5th overall. Pete Mitchell won the event from Matt Rotherham and another Swinnerton Cycles rider Miles Annon rode well to finish 3rd overall.

In the sponsored B-sprint local track League rider Sophie Capewell, still only a Youth Girl rider beat a lot of very experienced senior men to finish in 3rd place. This was surely the outstanding performance of the event.

Earlier Sophie beat the British Youth Girls 200m record with a fantastic 11.91sec a youth girls track record that I am sure will stand for a very long time. Tom Gregory won the event from Max Nethell.

Sophie Capewell also went on to win the sponsored Women’s Sprint. Sophie still only a Youth Girl rider beat all the senior woman. Thanks to Local Cycling club the Newcastle RC 2001/Vekta Velosport For sponsoring the Youth events.

Some great performances by the youth riders, Tom Byers of Eastlands Velo won the event but local Lyme RC riders Caleb Hill came 2nd, Farley Barber 3rd and Bradley Hill 5th. Aiesha Mellor did well to fish 4th Overall and win the 1st Girls prize as well.

In the Newcastle Track 20km Grand Prix over 50 Laps an early break formed with Alistair-Rutherford-Wheelbase Altura MGD and James-Notley-Mammoth Lifestyle Racing Team for them to go and finish in that order.
