Yates in fine form to stay in the title hunt
Connor Yates produced three podium finishes in the latest round of the Nora Mx Quad Bike 100cc British Championships at Milton Park in Northampton. Riding a machine which has undergone a complete upgrade since his last outing, the Kennington youngster, who turned nine last month, produced one of his best weekend displays to stay second in the overall standings. He was second in race one in wet conditions in the morning, before a quick gearbox change was needed, collecting two top-three finishes in the other two contests. The next round takes place at Pontrilas on the England/Welsh border on Sunday, July 17.
Trio Andy Branson, Sam Robinson and Lee Buckman trimmed four minutes off Ashford Wheelers Cycling Club’s 25-mile team record on the E2 course at Newmarket in Suffolk. Meanwhile, Wheelers tried out a new course over the distance on the A2070 Hamstreet bypass. Several riders posted personal bests, with Stewart King the quickest on the night with 59 minutes 34 seconds. David Hampton showed he is recovering well from a broken leg by clocking 1:01.53.
