Mid Summer Track Meeting 2012
Location: Necastle Under Lyme
Event: 19 August 2012

This year’s British Summer again hit this meeting a couple of hours into the event bringing rain that halted proceedings for a couple of hours. After a stoppage, the track dried sufficiently to hold the 20km race and some events in the youth omnium but unfortunately the track just never remained dry enough for the top class sprinting that would have been in store for us and subsequently the event had to be then aborted.

Due to rain mid-meeting, this event did not get past the first round reps. Therfore, there was no result or counting points for the National Sprinters League except the 200m time trial. Winner and local rider, Kian Emadi from Brian Rourke Cycles won it in a new track record time.

National endurance leauge 20 km scratch.

After a rain delay, the track dried sufficiently to hold the 20km distance race. The endurance riders tried to keep the pace up in an attempt to get rid of some the sprinters and were successful apart from Matt Crampton still being left in at the end. Three riders broke away, with an attack from Rob Lampton towards the end but it all came together with just one lap to go with Matt Crampton taking a win and local rider James Notley taking second place.
