Jude Du Toit, racing for Newark Castle Cycling Club, claimed the number one spot in an under-12s race on Sunday.

Competing in round nine of the Lincolnshire Cyclocross League at Winterton Showground, Scunthorpe, the young rider crossed the line first and kicked-off a success weekend for the Newark club.

Long Bennington’s Joshua Lane, racing for Witham Wheelers, also competed in the under-12s race and finished in tenth place for the second successive week.

Isabel Darvill finished in second place in the women’s race.

In the under-nine category, Jude’s younger brother, Jet, was in action.

Noah Lane, younger brother of Joshua, who also represents Witham Wheelers, finished sixth for a second successive week in the under-nine race.

Stanley Russell (Newark Castle) and Tom Powell (Newark Castle) also competed and achieved 11th and 22nd place finishes respectively.

Ian Russell, of Moda Road Team, was in action at the Winterton Showground and finished eighth in the veteran’s race.

Isabel Darvill, racing for Velo Schils-Interbike Race Team, went one better than last week’s third-place finish as she achieved second place in the women’s race.

Coming off the back of a first place finish among last weeks competing ladies, Zoe Codd, of Velo Club Flintham, travelled to York to race in round four of the HSBC UK Cyclocross National Trophy.

Codd, who battled the muddy and wet conditions, cycled to 17th place at the York Cycle Sport event.

Due to the National Trophy in York, local riders did not compete in the West Midlands, Leicestershire or Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Cyclocross League over the weekend, which are set to resume over the weekend.
