Despite the damp and sometimes very wet conditions, there was a good turnout of 162 competitors at the NSC last Tuesday night for round 15 of Team RL360 Isle of Man’s youth league.

Amelia & Film Crew

A film crew from German/French TV company ARTE filmed some of the action for a documentary they are making entitled “The Isles of the Queen”. As part of the programme they were following young Manx cyclist Amelia Sharpe (above) who has been making a name for herself in the sport.

In the novices class Jack Monaghan notched up his seventh win of the series, crossing the line well clear of Jasper Whalley who edged out Lucas Wootton in the race for the runners-up spot. Harry Tummon was a lonely fourth and Safiya Laagayed pipped Ryan Cartwright in the bunch sprint for fifth. Eli Dawson, Austin Baglow, Jackson Roberts and leading girl Charley Skillen completed the top ten.

Finbar Mcsevney rode away from the field to score his ninth victory in the born 2011 & later category. Carter Kneale and Bobby Kewley were a solid second and third, with Abigail Cowell fending off Bobby Kerruish and Toby Costain to take the girls’ prize in fourth place. Poppy Clayton led Antony Aspell home for seventh and Cameron Eyres stayed ahead of a group of four chasers to grab ninth. Jack Kewley outran Kieran Binns, Cal Joyce and Josie Quirk in the dash for tenth.

Brad Le Geyt ousted breakaway partner Stanley Kinnish to bag maximum points in the born 2010 event. Kylan Murphy lost contact with the two leaders on the final lap but had a big enough gap on the rest of the field to finish a safe third. Conor Madsen-Mygdal beat top girl Lula Kinnish to the flag for fourth and Ffinlo Thomas forged ahead of his twin brother Illiam to snatch sixth. Max Messenger escaped from a chasing trio to secure eighth and Zac Lund held off Ruby Partington and Oliver Wootton in the scrap for ninth. Newcomer Elijah Bradley did well to finish a creditable 13th in the tricky conditions.
A seven-strong leading group fought over the honours in the born 2009 age group. Tom Pickavance got the final verdict over Eddie Dillon, with Cameron Hounsell taking third ahead of Zach Jones, May-Saa Smith, Matthew Hooper and Abi Clayton. Jonah Kenny and Harry Beattie just failed to stay with the fast moving frontrunners, finishing just behind in eighth and ninth respectively. Max Davies overtook Florrie Thomas on the finishing straight to wrap up the top ten.

Alec Sorby continued his winning ways in the born 2008 race, outgunning Fearne Bregazzi, Freddie Griffin, Joel Long and Charlie Williams in the rush for the chequered flag. Ella Darnill led Leon Murphy and Lewis Quirk home for sixth, while Jamie Gibson overcame a strong challenge from Tiana Kelly to take ninth.

A determined Orry Lund finally made it to the top slop in the born 2007 class, fending off runner-up Charlie Scarffe and the fast finishing Jordan Carter in the final gallop to seize the win. Florence Griffin led Jess Pickavance and Jemma Quayle in to pick up the girls’ award in fourth place, with Charles Boyd and Joseph Devereau coming in separately for seventh and eighth.

In the born 2006 race Ivan Sorby and Nicola Quaye went from the gun and stayed clear to the finish, crossing the line in that order. Samuel Devereau clipped off the front of the chasing group to nab third and Tom Caine won the charge for fourth. In the following born 2005 & earlier grouping Jonty Bregazzi scored an impressive solo win ahead of James Devereau and Frank Kinnish. Emily Kinley was the first girl in fourth place.

Cian Jackson bounced back from a couple of recent defeats to reclaim the top spot in the combined under-eight and under-ten racing bikes, outsprinting Owen Collins, Ivan Sorby, Drystan Sewell and Orry Lund in the race for the line. Charlie Scarffe got the better of Alec Sorby in the tussle for sixth and Sophie Smith pipped Nicola Quaye for the girls’ honours in eighth place.

The field in the under-12 racing bikes circulated in two separate groups. At the finish Ralf Holden took the sprint from James Devereau and Tyler Annis in second and third places. Niall Colquitt was fourth and Kiera Prentice the best girl in fifth position. Frank Kinnish was sixth and Jack Sowerby spearheaded the second group in for seventh.

In the U/14 & U/16 racing bikes Ben Christian returned from a bout of illness to register his maiden success in the series, coming out on top in the final bunch gallop for an impressive victory. Adam Kelly was second and Lucas Mudie third. Will Corkill was the top U/14 rider in seventh spot and Amelia Sharpe the best girl in tenth place.
