Considering that the holiday season is now in full swing, there was a good entry of 203 competitors for round 16 of Team Royal London 360 Isle of Man's youth league, staged at the National Sports Centre last Tuesday night in reasonably good conditions.
At one point it seemed that the event would suffer the same fate as the previous round, which fell victim to the wet weather. Luckily, the rain that had been falling for most of the day stopped in time for the racing to start on schedule.


In the novices class Chloe Comaish rode clear of the field to record her first ever victory. Edward Teare chased hard but in the end had to settle for a safe second ahead of Francesca Avery, who passed Maddie Butterworth on the finish straight to claim the final place on the podium. Daniel Kirk, Sophia Littlewood and Chloe Dillon came in on their own for fifth, sixth and seventh places respectively, with Donal Hensman outsprinting Oliver Wylie and Mia Littlewood for eighth. Harvey Coole recovered from a crash to grab 11th and Luca Moretta edged out Joey Magee for 12th.
After finishing second on no fewer than six occasions, Nathan Slack finally made the number one slot in the born 2004 & later category. Issac Kirk got the better of Joshua Dudley for the runners-up spot and Harvey Lawrence came home alone for fourth. Ben Boyle led chasers Niall Colquitt, Mairi Harrison (1st girl), Mia Worthington, Lucy Worthington and Bradley Kneen across the line for seventh.
Jake Wilson and Jonty Bregazzi could not be split at the end of the born 2003 age group and were credited with equal first. Leading girl Darcy Cain was also in the frame for the honours but just lost out in the final sprint, finishing a well deserved third. Matthew Black got away from travelling companion Jack Christian to secure fourth and Oliver Williams was an unchallenged sixth. Joshua Jones dropped Aaron Ramsay in the closing stages to snatch seventh and Tom Brennan held off the fast finishing Matthew Coole for ninth. Seth Coole was 11th and Megan Cannell the second girl in 12th place.
Notching up his fourth success in a row, Aaron Lund went from the gun in the born 2002 race and never looked like being caught. Joshua Mills broke free from the chasing pack to claim second and a tiring Fin Samson held off  a closing Will Corkill for third. Jamie McCann ousted Elliot Lawrence for fifth and Caitlin Christian pipped Charlie Moss for seventh. Alastair Flint and Ben Haworth completed the top ten.
Adam Scarffe took advantage of the absence of main rival Max Walker to record his eighth win in the born 2001 class. The hard chasing Tyler Cain was second just ahead of top girl Emma Draper, who continues to make great progress. Juan Kneen was too strong for Amelia Sharpe and Cullen Gell in the dash for fourth, while Thomas Chatel put in a late spurt to overhaul Matthew Flint and Chloe Crellin in the battle for seventh. Lydia Glover rounded off the top ten leader board.

Glen Vine's Thomas Bostock got the verdict over Sam Batey and Ben Christian in the gallop at the end of the born 2000 event. Adam Kelly had a lonely race in fourth place after just failing to get on the back of the three leaders. Lucas Mudie left Adam Long and Harry Cain behind to take fifth, his best result of the series so far, and Jake Flowers overtook Daniel Cowin on the last lap to secure eighth.
A last lap injection of speed earned Conor Davies a comfortable win in the Born 1999 category. Joseph Glover, Liam McCann and Daniel Scarffe trailed in for second, third and fourth , with Kaitlin Slack edging out Abby Quirk for fifth place.
Jamie Dudley forged ahead of Matthew Draper on the final circuit to bag maximum points for the tenth time in the born 1998-96 grouping. Sophie Black was a good third ahead of Brandon Cain and Amy Kinley, who got the better of Sam Mills in the fight for fifth.  

In the under 12 racing bikes Owen Dudley outgunned breakaway partners Matthew Draper, Joseph Haddock, Nathan Draper and Conor Davies in the dash for the chequered flag. Sixth placed Thomas Bostock led in a five strong group of pursuers consisting of Dan Watterson, Liam McCann, Sam Batey and Callum Clague, with William Draper the best of the rest in 11th place. Amy Kinley (12th) took the girls' prize from Eleanor Davies and Kaitlin Slack.
Birthday boy George Doyle scored his maiden win in the under 16's racing bikes 25 lapper. Doyle sprinted to victory ahead of Alex Haddock and Jake Kelly after a 12- strong breakaway group had been whittled down to just four riders. Warwick Sanderson was dropped by the three frontrunners in the closing stages, settling for a solid fourth in front of the main chasing bunch spearheaded by Nicholas Corlett and Leon Mazzone. The leading girl was Anna Christian in tenth place.
