Cycle Club Sudbury continued their winning streak in inter-club competitions when they defeated a strong West Suffolk Wheelers (WSW) team.

Their new strength in depth, with more riders now coming through the ranks, paid dividends as they recorded a 232 points to 213 victory.

The five scoring fastest riders for CCS were headed by the in-form Jonathan Weatherley, whose time of 22 minutes 58 seconds was only 14 seconds off WSW’s Dale Sturman’s overall winning time of 22.44 on the Lavenham 10 course.

Simon Daw took third place with a 23.07 ride, Darren Rule’s 23.46 netted fifth place and was followed by Damon Day with 23.58 in sixth and Nick Baker with a 24.12 ride for seventh.

These high placings ensured CCS retained the trophy for another year.

Forty-seven riders took part in the event, which was one of the largest fields ever seen for the competition.

In the Thursday Evening Points Series, two riders are locked together at the top with Kirsty White’s current total of 895 points just edging out Malcolm Borg’s 891pts in second place.

Borg has leapt up the leader board recently with some huge improvements and seems set to challenge White’s best efforts.

Third in the series is Jamie Howe on 718pts and is closely followed by young Charlie Pratt on 700pts.

Fifth and sixth places are also a close affair with veteran Tom Moore with 506pts just ahead of another in-form rider, Darren Rule, who recently won his first event on the Hitcham Hilly course.
