Report: Snowdon Sports
There was some great racing on show at the third round of the Dolan Schools Circuit Races, staged at Victoria Park in Southport on Saturday afternoon.
As the series progresses there is clearly some great battles being fought out among the riders across the categories, and some strong riders looks set to progress to become great junior riders in due course.
In the Youth A (under-16) boys super group, Max Spedding (Birkenhead North End CC) took the win convincingly, almost a minute ahead of team-mate Jack Hulme who just beat third-placed Harris Redgrove (SportCity Velo).
It was a major improvement for Spedding, whose previous best finish was tenth in the last round.
East Bradford CC’s Robert Scott won the regular Youth A category by less than a second in a sprint finish. He held off Chris Fallon (Liverpool Mercury) to land his first win in the series, following a third place in round two. Monica Dew (SportCity Velo) was the best girl in the race.
In the Under-14 Super Group, Simon Howlett (Border City Wheelers) won by 20 seconds, again notching up his first win of the series.
And in the regular Youth B (under-14) races, Alistair Leivers (Blackpool YCA) won by a second and a half – his third win of the series following wins in the opening race of both the previous two rounds.
After finishing second three times over the last two rounds, Katie Helsby (Eastlands Velo) was best girl in the Under-14s category.
Robert Donaldson (Mossley CRT) outsprinted Isaac Peatfield (Bolton Hot Wheels) at the end of the Under-12 (Youth C) race. It was Donaldson’s third race win in the series, and means he hasn’t finished outside the top two in any of the five races. In the Girls race, Betty Henderson (Southport CC) took the win.
Ben Peatfield (Bolton Hot Wheels) scored a convincing victory in the youth D (under-10s) category by around 20 seconds from rival James Higham (Eastlands Velo). The pair have tussled throughout the series, and the win in round three was Peatfield’s third.
Niamha Albones (Century RC) proved victorious in the youth D girls race.
Euan Hacker (North Cheshire Clarion) has battled throughout the series with under-8 rival James Donaldson (Mossley CRT), but this time he took a clear win from Mike Henderson (Southport CC) while Donaldson had to settle for third, a lap down.
And Isabel Koch (Bolton Hot Wheels CC) was top girl in the youth E (under-8) category.
