Cycling Weekly - - NEWS -

Stephen Lee (Der­wentside CC) se­cured his fourth win in the North East Cy­clo-cross League on Sun­day, storm­ing to vic­tory at Het­ton Lyons Coun­try Park near Sun­der­land.

The 22-year-old from Con­sett has rid­den all seven races so far, and not fin­ished out­side the top two. On Sun­day, he crossed the line al­most three min­utes ahead of his near­est ri­val, Roddy Weir (Muckle CC).

In the women’s race Marie Lynn (Boom­pods EDCO) con­tin­ued her late push for the North East ti­tle with a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive vic­tory, lap­ping all but one of her ri­vals.

In the Lon­don League Alec Briggs (TEKKERZ) won his first race of the sea­son by just one sec­ond, edg­ing out Neil Phillips (Ki­bosh Rac­ing) af­ter a race-long tus­sle at Newchapel in Sur­rey on Sun­day.

But con­sis­tency is prov­ing key for Chris Ansell, the 33-year-old Team Cor­ri­dori rider who is lead­ing the over­all stand­ings de­spite only ap­pear­ing on the podium once so far this sea­son.

It took a last-lap at­tack for Cal­lum Ma­cleod (Pedal On) to beat team­mate Sam Allen at Southamp­ton Sports Cen­tre, venue for round six of the W es­sex League, while 17 year-old Ab­bie Manley( Har grove sm on tez um a’ s) was fastest fe­male.

In Es­sex, James Madg­wick (Blood­wise QSW) main­tained his 100 per cent record with vic­tory in round seven of the East­ern League at Furze Hill. He crossed the line over a minute clear of his near­est ri­val to take a fifth vic­tory this sea­son.

Al­bion Cy­cles rider Matthew Tay­lor was 24 sec­onds ahead of Shib­den Cy­cles ri­val Joe Coukham in round six of the York­shire Points Se­ries in Hud­der­s­field on Sun­day, while An­nie Simp­son (Hope Fac­tory Rac­ing) cruised to vic­tory in the women’s race.
