Ripley cyclist Mike Allen has been in winning form again, carrying on his excellent season so far.

The Belper Bicycle Club member was competing with clubmates Derrick Woodings and Bill Cotton in the British Cycling Masters National Track Championships, which was held down at the Newport Velodrome.

In the H-age category (ages 65 to 69) Mike won the 500m Time Trial, the Scratch race and was second in the Pursuit.

Bill was second in the Points race and third in the Scratch race in the same H group.

Derrick was busy collecting medals in his J age group (age 75-plus).

He came third in the scratch race, third in the pursuit but won and retained his points race title again.
