CYCLING: After losing a race a week earlier when his foot came out of the peddle at the death, Weaver Valley CC’s Alan Kemp could claim only third place in his latest event – the Vic Sutton Memorial at Pocklington in the Yorkshire Wolds – after suffering a puncture on the uphill sprint finish.
Kemp had better luck at Oulton Park on Tuesday, registering his 11th win of the season.
Mark Thompson, Dave Astles, Les Charnley and Chris Lamb finished well up in the bunch.
Craig Lee, Richard Munroe, Andy Poole, Kevin Underhill and Gary Adate claimed similar positions in the under 50s event.
Valley’s 10-mile time trial series continues at Byley tonight (7pm). The club run leaves Hartford RBL car park at 9.30am on Sunday. Newcomers are welcome at both events.
