ASTLEY and Tyldesley Cycle Speedway Club rode to a big 95-45 win against Heckmondwike in a Northern League encounter at Gin Pit on Sunday.

For the second Sunday running, Heckmondwike could field only four riders and the outcome was never in doubt.

For A&T, both Dariusz Pilas and Remi Burchardt were unbeaten by an opponent, with Ben Dickenson defeated just twice.

Afterwards, A&T took on Stockport in a Combination Challenge match.

Both sides blooded their youngsters to give them much needed match practice. Stockport ran out 66-54 winners, leading from the first race and throughout the match. Best for A&T were Joel Partington, beaten once, and Matthew J Turnbull.

A&T also hosted the sixth and final round of the North West Go-Race Grand Prix Series.

Riders went off a varying range of handicaps, as set by the referee, throughout the match.

On the day, Luke Jamson took the honours, losing only once. Joel Partington finished second with 17 points, while Jake Read and Joe Pickford tied for third place with 16 points apiece.

However, the overall series was decided lower down the day’s scoring.

Max Evans scored 14 points on the day and, with closest challenger Adam Watson also scoring 14 points, emerged as overall winner of the series with 69 points, with Adam taking second place with 67.

Luke Jamson finished in third place overall in the series on 57 points.
