John Yates was on top form at the Manchester Regional Track League last week, posting a 1st place at the Manchester Velodrome event. John’s win in the 16-lap points race was followed by a 2nd in the 16-lap scratch, before finally taking a 3rd in The Devil Takes The Hindmost. His impressive results mean he will now move up to group 2 from his current group 1.
Meanwhile club-mate Nick Hall, riding in group 4, also had a very successful evening after winning the points race, coming 2nd in the Course De Primes and 4th in the scratch race.
Adam Yates raced in the all-important Premier Division Track League, where he achieved 4th in the 50-lap points race, 6th in 40-lap scratch race and 7th in the 10-mile event. Adam’s twin brother Simon is currently in Beijing, where he recently picked up a bronze medal as part of the team pursuit in the Cycling World Cup, at the Beijing Velodrome.
