The local talents travelled to Derby for their first indoor race of the year and show that they will be a force to be reckoned with this term with some impressive performances.

Flynn McGurk, Dylan Taylor and Jo Tidman all sealed second place finishes in their respective categories, while Arthur Buckler went one better and triumphed in both of his races.

However, he and Warren Eve, who finished third in one race, were denied their places on the podium because of separate incidents on the track.

The team also welcomed back Lucy McInerney after a long break from the sport, and rookie racer Luke Frary who turned in an mature performance in the Men’s Masters Races in his first ever outing.

Coach Mike McInerney said: “The team has very well today but there is still lots of hard work to do.

“We need to knuckle down and concentrate on our home race and then the British Indoor Championships in March.”
