IN-Form Paul Cox (Team Pedal Power) was an untroubled winner of the eighth round of the Yorkshire Points series on a rolling, grassy South Dalton Estate course in Beverley.
The 26-year-old Nottingham rider, who has been in commanding form in the Lincolnshire League, enjoyed a change of scenery as he took the lead on the opening lap and smoothly rode away from the rest of the field to finish well over a minute clear of second-placed Ben Cooper (Hargreaves Cycles).
The drama took place in the chasing group behind Cox as James Dalton (Pedal Sport) clipped a bunny hop on the second lap and hit the deck, bringing down Edwyn Oliver-Evans (CX Mag).
Dalton took two minutes to replace his chain and was pretty much at the rear of the field when he restarted, but worked his way back through the field in determined fashion to secure a creditable third place, while under-23 Oliver-Evans was quickly back in the action before dropping down outside the top ten with a rear mech problem.
Richard Knowles (BC Private Member) worked his way up from mid-field to finish fourth.
In the veterans race, Dan Cook (High Peak Cycles) saw off the Pedal Sport challenge of Chris Taylor and Mike Young to win by half a minute, and Euan Cameron (East Bradford CC) claimed a narrow nine-second victory over Jenson Young (Pedal Sport) in the under-16 youth race.
