Young Phantoms riders make a flying start to Winter Series
Peterborough Phantoms riders made home advantage count, producing a fine set of results when the city club hosted the first round of the East Winter Series on Sunday at their Orton Malborne track.
Youngsters Joseph Carey (Male 13yrs) and George Fox (Male 7yrs) led the way, both taking clean sweeps in their age groups. They won all three of their motos (heats) and the A finals.
Next best was Daniel Arnett, who gave a great display of skill and speed to finish second in the Male 15yrs final.
New riders Mikey Slack (Male 30-39yrs) and Josh Henson (Male 9yrs) both did well to make finals on their club debuts.
And Richard Ellis, making a return to BMX racing in the 24in cruiser class after 33 years away, gained some impressive results in his motos before claiming a third place in the A final. His son Jacob finished fourth in the B final of the Male 8yrs class.
Bradley Goulding, Liam Arnett, Alfie Clarke, Harvey Putland and Jazz Newton all rode up an age group in the Male 12yrs and gained some impressive results.
