After finishing on the podium seven times in regional cyclo-cross leagues across the country, Dirt Wheels rider Dieter Droger finally secured a victory in the Geoff Bewley Memorial, round eight of the North West Cyclo-Cross League in Liverpool on Sunday.

The 31-year-old Barnsley-based rider finished second in the North West League in the first two rounds earlier in the season, but finally tasted victory in Saturday’s race around Otterspool Park.

He crossed the line ahead of leading under-23 rider Jack Humphreys, the 18-year-old Wheelbase rider from Preston, while Steven Ward (MTS Cyclesport) completed the podium in third.

Best of the veterans in the main race was Pete Middleton (Zepnat RT) in seventh, while top junior was Rhos on Sea CC rider Dylan Kerfoot-Robson in 13th and fastest woman was Becky Preece (Red Rose Olympic).
