Cross: Lampier wins Lincolnshire League R7

Report: Snowdon Sports

Steve Lampier (Sigma Sport RT) won the latest round of the Lincolnshire League in Louth on Sunday, bringing to an end Mark Cotton’s run of consecutive victories in the series on one of the county’s toughest courses.

27-year-old Lampier battled to a deserved victory over a tough Hubbards Hill Farm course in Lincolnshire, while Cotton had to be content with third spot after a tremendous ride from promising junior George Thompson (Sleaford Wheelers).

Cotton had been battling with his two rivals for much of the race, but after starting on intermediate tyres he was struggling for traction and headed for the pits with two laps remaining to switch for a bike with tyres better suited to the muddy conditions.

But his tactic didn’t work, and his run of six consecutive wins in the League came to an end.

After settling in with his rivals for the first couple of laps, Lampier began to apply pressure on the third of 11 laps on a long drag as they headed from the cark park into the grassland, and he built on his lead.

With 30 seconds in the bank, Lampier dug in and eventually won by 43 seconds, while Thompson, 17 and from Sleaford, took second, with Cotton crossing the line 1-36 behind the winner.
