IT was a day for the golden oldies when Phan­toms staged the first round of the East Anglia Sum­mer Se­ries.

Spon­sored by Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil, the event proved to be a show­case for lo­cal tal­ent across all age groups with more than 50 Phan­toms riders tak­ing part at Her­ling­ton.

But it was the the se­nior speed­sters who stole the show with Glyn Cartwright and Nigel Stone­bridge both rolling back the years.

Cartwright proved to be un­stop­pable in the Cruiser 35-39 cat­e­gory as he took first place in all his heats be­fore snatch­ing vic­tory in the final - a feat matched by Stone­bridge in the 45+ Cruiser class.

Dar­ren Put­land also showed good form in the Mas­ters heats but had to set­tle for sixth place in the final while Paul Maid­ments and Michael Ledlie filled the top two spots in the Mas­ters B final.

But there were also some ter­rific per­for­mances in the ju­nior ranks with Phan­toms new­comer Cody Hard­ing tak­ing the hon­ours in the Novice 14 and Un­der sec­tion - ahead of Ge­orge San­son in sec­ond with Luke Jack­son in third.

In the Male 6 and Un­der Josh Cur­tis was the high­est-placed lo­cal rider af­ter snatch­ing the run­ner­sup slot and in the Male 9 and Un­der Jack Leahy took sec­ond place - only just miss­ing out on top spot.

In the Male 15 and Un­der, Nathan Hast­ings bat­tled his way to vic­tory ahead of Adam Cham­bers while in the Fe­male 11-12s Deb­o­rah Par­rish took first place from club­mate and new­comer Brit­ney Burling­ton.

Deeann Milling­ton was also in win­ning form as she took the hon-
