Location: Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire
Event: 25 August 2011
Report: Chris Pyatt

With a number of riders away at the Youth and Junior Championships at Manchester the turnout was down on the season average however the racing was fast and furious with riders seeing a good opportunity to score points.

In the A Class Sprint League, Barney Swinnerton Science in Sport, scored seven points with him winning along the way the Keiren League event. The 500m Handicap event was won by Joffie Houlton, PM and in doing so ensured he has won this competition overall. In the Team Sprint the win went to Lauren Quenby, Phil Houlton (both Newcastle RC 2001) and Steve Cronshaw (Brereton Wheelers).

The A Class Endurance events saw veteran rider Adrian Adgar (Balanced Performance) win the final ten mile scratch from Christian Braybrooke and Will Thomas (both Velocity RT). Adrian also took second place in the eight lap scratch and the Points race to mover up to joint second overall in the league with the absent Paul Whatmough. Sam Birchall (Velocity RT) celebrated his move up to the A group as he won impressively the eight lap Points race. Teammate Will Thomas took the other A class event in the Devil.

The B Class events saw Neil Cummins win 8 lap Scratch, Devil and Course de primes to close the gap on league leader Alex Webb (Lyme RC). This sets up a nail biting finish to this league as with only one event to go Neil is only four and a half points behind Alex and Alex will be missing next week as he competes in the UK School Games in Sheffield.

The youth events saw a battle between Alex Braybrooke (Velocity RT) and Paige Millward (Lyme RC). Alex took the Devil and Paige the scratch and a member of the winning team sprint with Sallie Birchall (Lyme RC) Conner Fearon, Weaver Valley and Matthew Braybrooke (Eastlands Velo). The opening block handicap went to James Duncalf (Lyme RC) who used his long mark to goo effect to take the win from teammate Liam Zwetschnikow.
