THE UK’s leading road race rider Mick Twelves demonstrated his dominance in the sport once again by winning round four of the Percy Stallard National series.

In-form Twelves followed up last week’s victory in the British Veterans Championships by winning round four of the six round series which was held at Great Limber in Lincolnshire.

Twelves stiff competition from a strong field of riders having won the series for the past two series and the task was made harder this time around having missed the opening two rounds through injury.

Having won round three convincingly, the M.I.Racing rider looked to make a bright start but could only watch on as a breakwawy pack built up a lead by over two minutes.

Twelves was a marked man but 25-miles later he was able to make his move and with one-and-a-half miles remaining he crossed the finish line first to cliam his eighth Stallard win in as many starts.

“The ex-professional not only wins all before him, but spends time organising the Mallory Park Summer Evening series and next weekend will be organising and riding the LVRC  National Circuit Championships,” said M.I.Racng boss Mick Ives.

“He would have liked to have promoted the event in the Coventry area, but there are no facilities suitable.

“He also spends a lot of time coaching and advising our younger and less experienced riders. He is such a valuable member if the team.”
