Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - SPORT -

CY­CLING: Keigh­ley cy­clo-cross rider Ian Field strength­ened his lead in the Na­tional Tro­phy Se­ries with vic­tory in round three at Shrews­bury Sports Vil­lage.

The 31-year-old pro­fes­sional with the Har­groves Cy­cles team crossed the line well clear of his ri­vals. It was Field’s sec­ond win of the se­ries, hav­ing set­tled for sec­ond in round two when Leeds rider and reign­ing na­tional and world ju­nior cham­pion Tom Pid­cock took the win.

But with Pid­cock ab­sent, it was busi­ness as usual for Field.

In other cat­e­gories, Bradford’s So­phie Thack­ray (PH MAS-Paul Milnes) was third in the women’s race, while Jen­son Young (PH-MAS Paul Milnes Cy­cles) had to set­tle for fourth spot in the ju­nior men’s race. And tak­ing af­ter his older brother, Joseph Pid­cock was Un­der-16 boys’ win­ner.

Else­where, vet­eran Jamie Sharp was in ex­cel­lent form tak­ing vic­tory at the Bradley Wood Cy­clo-Cross event in Brig­house, West York­shire.

The 43-year-old Feather Cy­cles rider from York made up a minute on the se­nior rid­ers to claim vic­tory from Thomas Selby (RNRMCA) by 40 sec­onds.

Richard Mid­dle­ton was third, while Re­becca Jones was fastest woman.
