Astley & Tyldesley had six riders competing in the prestigious Dash Trophies Individuals, at Wednesfield, on Saturday. Some great performances saw A&T riders take rostrum places in all three events.

In the u-14s match, John White finished on 19 points, losing only to Leicester's Kyle Wells in heat 10. Wells also finished on 19, as did Sheffield's Kielan Burton. In the run-off for 1st place, Burton drew the favourable grid 1, Wells on grid 3 and White on grid 4. That was the order in which the riders finished, to determine the top three placings. Charlie Burgess scored 7 points and Tom Morrissey 5.

Next up were the Veterans (o-40) riders. Steve Harris scored 17 points to finish overall runner-up, one point behind Leicester's Kev Burns. In a run-off for 3rd place, Leicester's Craig Marchant beat Gt. Blakenham's Jason Ashford, after both had scored 16 points. Mick Knowles finished on 7 points.

The Women's match concluded the day's racing. Emily Burgess won her opening four races, to lead the field with one round of races to go. Unfortunately for Emily, she was drawn off the unfavourable grid 4 in heat 19 and trailed in 3rd behind Poole's Macie Schmidt and Leicester's Lizzie Rigley. This meant that Emily finished on 18 points and in 3rd place overall. In a run-off for 1st place, Schmidt beat Exeter's Lauren Hookway, after both had scored 19 points.
