Mike Twelves claims sixth road race victory

M.I.RACING star Mike Twelves cannot stop winning after claiming his sixth road race victory of the season.

The recently crowned British Champion won the sprint event at Mallory Parkon Tuesday evening just days after finishing eighth overall in the Battle of Edge Hill race.

He is now set to take a short break before during the Tour de France and the Commonwealth Games before tackling the second half of the season.

Elsewhere, cyclo cross star, Phil Blacker, kept the team’s run of victories going after coming first in the Stourport on Severn Circuit Race.

This weekend he will be hoping to secure another win in the Omloop Van Der Drie Dorpen race which is an event which should suit Blacker with its off-road sections based in Daventry and Southam.

Peter Busby looks on target to be a contender for the Most Improved Rider of the Year award once again after taking victory in the Friday Evening Mountain Bike Series in Rockingham.

Busby was the clear winner over team mate Tim Stowe with British Cyclo Cross Champion, Phil Roach, coming fifth, and now has a clear lead in the overall series with Roach coming second.

And finally, Jim Stevenson came close to recording another team victory in Surrey on Sunday but he was made to settle for second place in the 50-mile Dave Griffiths Memorial Race.
