NATIONAL champion Mike Twelves produced a brilliant display of attacking riding to win Round Three of the Percy Stallard National Road Race Series.
The former professional showed his class by breaking away on his own for over 30 miles on a tough, open circuit at Limber near Grimsby and conditions were made worse by gale force winds.
Twelves was caught by two other riders as he neared the finish but he was able to finish the job with a strong finish to claim his third win out of three events to lead the series overall.
And with three events remaining it looks very unlikely that he will be beaten for the Championship.
Also representing Coventry-based M.I.Racing was Derrick Woodings who finished fourth in the category for riders aged 70 and over.
Elsewhere, on Saturday, Mick Allen took his total road race wins this season to after claiming victory in he Darley Moor circuit event in Derbyshore.
Wooding was third in the 70+ category behind a former Professional riders and a current World Track Champion and team mate Mick Ives, who finished a close fourth.
The team’s top triathlete Samantha Anderson took part in a rare 10-mile time trial near Bicester and despite gale force winds she managed to win the event by a large margin.
It was Anderson’s last race before she competes for Great Britain in the World Triathlon Championships in Canada.
