Cycling: Milward saves her best until last to claim track victory
RISING star Paige Milward produced a superb last lap to steal victory in the Brooks Cycles Track League.

Swinnerton had the consolation of winning the B Class Course De Primes.
Lyme's Sallie Birchall, aged 14, won the Youth Scratch and Youth Devil events and is now preparing to move up to compete in the B Class competition.

James Duncalf (Lyme) held on to win the 1km block handicap from his club-mates Bradley Hill and Megan Williams.
The trio had all impressed in the Freewheelers League last year and have now moved up to the main league, where they are more than holding their own against experienced riders.
