ANOTHER brilliant weekend for M.I.Racing saw the Coventry-based cycling team claim three wins and one runner-up position across the country.

The team continued its domination in Midland Cyclo Cross with Steve Knight dominating the veterans race at Wolverhampton Allesley Stadium.

Knight was in excellent form by winning the race for riders aged 40-49 to increase his lead in the series.

Team mate Richard Allcock was riding his first cyclo cross season for over 20 years after joining the team in March and he finished fourth.

In the race for riders aged 50 and over, M.I.Racing’s Peter Busby finished first while Mike McCann finished a brilliant eighth in the 55+ race.

John Gabriel continued to dominate the 65+ category with yet another victory and recent signing Keir Lewis had his best ever cyclo cross performance by finishing second.

The ex-professional and former British Champion lived up to his reputation by finishing runner-up in what was final race of the season.

Veteran rider Derrick Woodings finished second at the UCI World Masters Track Championship Points race inside the Manchester Velodrome.

At the National Trophy series event in Southhampton, Carl Sturgeon just missed out on a podium place when he finished in fourth after ploughing his way through the field as a result of a low grid position due to a lack of events last season.

In the Race for riders aged 50 and over, World, Welsh and British Champion Phil Roach finished fourth, while team mate Kirby Bennett finished tenth in the 100+ field.

Over the border in Wales, Mark James finished second in the veterans race and nearer to home Alan Buxcey won the M.I.Racing ‘Freewheeling’ competition.

Buxcey had been sidelined for several months with a shoulder injury but returned to action and is expected to return to cyclo cross events in the near future.
