The event organised by BSCA Yorkshire was held at Richard Dunn Sports Centre cycle track. The specially built cycle circuit is technically demanding with tight corners and a long drag of a climb.

William attacked from the start of the 12 lap race and immediately pulled clear of his rivals on a rain soaked circuit. By the end of the race a convincing 30 second lead had been built giving William the chance to celebrate his win in style as he crossed the line and receive the title of BSCA Yorkshire Circuit Race Champion for 2012 in the under 11 category.

He followed this up with an impressive third place at the Tameside Cycling Development Circuit Race held on July 3.

He cleverly managed to get settled on to the back of the under 16 boys race and used them to pull him around this tight and twisty circuit.

The British Schools Cycling Association was founded in 1967 and holds a series of regional and national competitions in eight different cycling disciplines. They also offer coaching events, bike clubs and comprehensive training packages.

VS Cycles rider of the season Ben Kellett secured his second win of the year at the Ron O’Brien memorial road race at Rainford in Merseyside.

The 50 mile race was held in typical summer weather – pouring rain, but it seems as though Ben is quite adept to the wet conditions as he won his first event in the wet too.

New VS signing Alistair Hepworth also finished the race but was not placed in the points.

Ben is building on his first victory which came last month .

The 19-year-old beat off stiff competition from Sportscover Altura and Blackhawk riders to take his first victory at the Ian Mountain Memorial Road Race.
