|Sat 7th July||North West Youth League Round 2||Astley & Tyldesley|
Astley & Tyldesley hosted Round 2 of the
multi-disciplinary North West Youth League. It was a very hot and sunny
Saturday morning's racing, with 35 riders competing.
A&T's Aiden Green raced unbeaten in the u-8 qualifiers and won the Grand Prix 'A' Final, ahead of team mate Frank White and Salt Ayre Cog Set's Harry Ball, with Oscar Belt fourth.
Duncan Whalley of A&T rode to a 16 points maximum in the u-10 qualifiers and won the Grand Prix 'A' Final, passing Salt Ayre Cog Set's Oliver Ball for the second time in the day. A&T's Lewis Skitterall was third and Fraser Cummings fourth.
British u-12 Grand Prix Champion John White, of A&T, was the clear winner in the u-12 category, again going through the qualifiers unbeaten and winning the Grand Prix 'A' Final. He finished ahead of team mates Tom Morrissey and Charlie Burgess, with Morgan Williams of Salt Ayre Cog Set fourth.
The u-14 event was more open, with riders changing positions in the races, before Salt Ayre Cog Set's Callum Williams took the win in the Grand Prix 'A Final, after top scoring in the qualifiers. Bolton Hot Wheels' Harry Clegg was second, ahead of Erin Corrigan of Get Off The Road and Simeon Kilroy of North Cheshire Clarion.
Melissa Boylin of Sportcity Velo and Ben Iddon of Salt Ayre Cog Set had some impressive duels in the u-16 match. In the qualifying heats, Melissa won three races, but fell whilst leading heat 3. Ben raced away to win the Grand Prix 'A' Final, with Melissa falling when second, to let in Jake Edwards and John Roberts, both of Salt Ayre Cog Set, to take second and third places respectively.
As ever, the cycle speedway round of this series was most enjoyable and ridden in a very sporting and friendly atmosphere. The Lancaster based Salt Ayre Cog Set club had a good turn out of numbers and were rewarded with some excellent results.
Each riders' overall position on the day is determined by their Grand Prix Final position.
