(by Dot Tilbury)

Despite the travelling difficulties caused by the road closures for the Manx Grand Prix motorcycle races, there was a good turnout of 202 competitors at the NSC last Tuesday night for the eighteenth and penultimate round of Team RL360 Isle of Man’s Youth League.

In the novices class Jack Monaghan went from the gun and was never seen again, taking the chequered flag well clear of runner-up Daniel Coates. Jasper Whalley was a solid third and Eli Dawson held off leading girl Safiya Laagayed in the dash fourth. Austin Baglow was too quick for James Cope, Charley Skillen and Evie Lund in the race for sixth, with Jackson Roberts and Harvey Wagstaffe just behind in 10th and 11th respectively.

Finbar McSevney cemented his position at the top of the overall standings with a decisive win in the born 2011 & later age group. Bobby Kerruish took the sprint for second ahead of fellow chasers Charlie Dormer, Bobby Kewley, Jay Jay Plowman, Erin Morgan and Abigail Cowell, while impressive newcomer Florence Bailey did well to oust the more experienced Poppy Clayton and Cameron Eyres in the battle for eighth. Toby Costain and Bernat Munoz-Fite filled the final two places on the top twelve leader board.

Brad Le Geyt overcame strong challenges from Kylan Murphy and Liam Blake to bag maximum points in the born 2010 category. Harrison Skillan pipped Archie Mulholland for fourth and Daniel Minay maintained a safe sixth place in front of Max Messenger, who rode away from Thomas Hutchinson on the last lap to claim seventh. Jack Edwards overtook Zac Lund in the closing stages to seize ninth and Eloise Kinrade picked up the girls’ prize in 13th spot.

In the born 2009 race Tom Pickavance scored his sixth success of the series, just getting the better of Zach Jones in the final lunge for the line. To girl May-Saa Smith returned from a two week break to snatch third from Abi Clayton and Cameron Hounsell hung onto fifth after losing contact with the leading quartet on the finishing straight. Harry Beattie edged Jonah Kenny for sixth and Henry Dormer beat Max Davies and Charlie Clarkson in the scrap for eighth. Finn Collister and William Ditchfield rounded off the top twelve.

Alec Sorby forged ahead of breakaway partners Freddie Griffin, Deaglan Blake and Joel Long to secure the win in the born 2008 event. Edward Field overcame Bob Radcliffe in the fight for fifth and first girl Ella Darnill stayed clear of pursuers Leon Murphy and Tiana Kelly to gain seventh. Lewis Quirk squeezed out Ryan Batty in the battle for tenth and Jonty Shimmin came in on his own for 12th.

Three riders escaped at the start of the born 2007 class and circulated together all the way to the finish where Cian Howard got the verdict over Orry Lund and Charlie Scarffe in the gallop for the line. Rio Kelly was too strong for Jordan Carter and Florence Griffin in the dart for fourth, while James Kinrade beat Ben Davies and Jess Pickavance in the tussle for seventh. Ed Coole wrapped up the top ten.

After gaining an early gap, Ivan Sorby time trialled to a comfortable victory in the born 2006 event. Samual Devereau kept Nicola Quaye at bay in the tussle second and Nathan Kinrade outpaced Sophie Smith, Bethany Turner-Priest and Tom Darnill in the gallop for fourth.

Dylan Sewell made a powerful attack at the start of the born 2005 & earlier grouping and stayed clear to the finish, building up a sizeable lead in the process. Blae Cain was second closely followed by Nathan Slack, Mairi Harrison and Callum Salisbury. Ella Griffin pipped Emily Kinley in the scrap for sixth.

In the under-8 and under-10 racing bikes Cian Howard picked up his second win of the night, outsprinting fellow frontrunners Owen Collins, Ivan Sorby and Drystan Sewell in the dart for the line. Orry Lund was a good fifth and Charlie Scarffe got past Alec Sorby near the finish to take sixth. Sophie Smith outgunned Nicola Quaye for the girls’ award in eighth spot, with Kazu Senior a fine tenth in only his second outing of the season.

The seven riders who turned out for the under-12 racing bikes stayed together for the entire race and were only separated in the final scamper for the line, with James Devereau taking the honours ahead of Niall Colquitt, James Scott, Nathan Slack, Mairi Harrison, Jack Sowerby and Callum Salisbury.

As usual the under-14 and under 16 racing bikes event was run at a furious pace. The riders at the front of the race made constant efforts to get away on their own, the most significant being Will Draper’s determined but ultimately unsuccessful attempt at ¾ distance. A ten-strong group of frontrunners contested the finish where Adam Kelly came through to take the sprint from Draper and Max Walker. Adam Scarffe, Tyler Hannay and Tosh Teare completed the top six, with Amelia Sharpe the first girl in 12th place.
