CYCLING: Palmer tops bill at Spalding's awards night

Fifty members of Spalding Cycling Club got together at The Royal Mail Cart for their annual dinner and presentation evening.

Although the evening is an opportunity for members to get together and socialise, the main focus is to present a total of 23 awards.

Neil Palmer topped the bill - winning the 25-mile trophy (55.20), 100-mile (3:47.32) and 12-hour (276.93 miles) while also breaking club records held since the early 1990s.

He also won the Outstanding Performance Cup, Senior and Veterans BAR (best average rider) and the 25-mile veterans on standard.

Close on his heels is Josh Wallis who picked up the 5-mile (10.50), 10-mile (21.26), 2-up 10-mile (26.23) and the 10-mile TT League.

Other winners were James Bramma (Best Novice and 1st Handicap 25-mile), Barry Drew (The Fisherman's Arms Handicap and 10-mile Handicap), Nathan Hyden (Best Go Ride Newcomer) and Tristan Bramma (Best Go Rider).

The Junior BAR Boys trophy was won by Thomas Wright for his performances in cyclo-cross and road racing.

The Ladies Best Performance Bar and Track Awards (both indoor and grass) were picked up by Matilda Gurney.

Sophie Wright earned the Junior Girls BAR award.

Father and son duo James and Tristan Bramma took up the challenge of cyclo-cross in several events even after the Lincolnshire League had finished.

Meanwhile, Matt Ellis (18) has been given a contract to ride with Charvieu Chavagneux Isère - a French Division Two club based near Lyon.
