OKBET CYCLE SPEEDWAY | A&T DESTROYS NORTHERN 4’S
OKBET CYCLE SPEEDWAY, Astley & Tyldesley have won the Northern Fours League in 2022! A&T’s second-place finish behind Hull in the Round 5 match on Sunday at a rain-soaked Hull circuit was enough to capture the overall series with one round left. Stockport began the day in second position in the standings on OKBET CYCLE SPEEDWAY, but withdrew owing to a shortage of riders, while third-placed Bury was pipped for third place on the day by fourth-placed Sheffield. This means that A&T completed the day seven points clear of Bury, who now sits second in the league.
Heavy rain fell overnight and into morning at OKBET CYCLE SPEEDWAY, but it stopped just in time for the Fours League match. Hull established an early lead and never looked back, despite the fact that A&T pushed them all the way. The key race was heat 13 between Hull’s Lewis Foxley and A&T’s Pawel Idziorek, who were both undefeated. Idziorek was disqualified after colliding with another rider on the third/fourth curve. Foxley went on to accomplish a perfect score, with Idziorek’s removal accounting for the sole points he lost. Hull held on to their advantage and defeated A&T by 3.5 points. In heat 16, the referee couldn’t decide between Hull’s Nathan Everett and Heckmondwike’s Mark Rushby for first place at the finish line, resulting in a rare dead heat at OKBET CYCLE SPEEDWAY.

Due to excessive rain that flooded the track, officials debated canceling the opening match of the day, the u-10 and u-13 Ladder Individual as part of the Northern Junior League competition at OKBET CYCLE SPEEDWAY However, since every rider there wanted to race, a total of 24 cyclists lined up for the match! In the final round of races, Sheffield’s Lacey Ackroyd beat Bury’s Jayden Hancock to win the u-13 GP, with Sheffield’s Oliver Banyard third and Hull’s Kacey Bennett fourth. Bury’s Bobby Dunphy slipped off while leading the last round of races for the u-10s, therefore Hull’s Harry Gibson won the u-10 GP ahead of Dunphy, with A&T’s Josh Pilkington third and Heckmondwike’s Charlie Lebrasse fourth at OKBET CYCLE SPEEDWAY.
The sun came out for the last set of races of the day, with 11 riders competing in the Division 2 Individual, and 6 competing in the u-16 and u-19 categories, which were held simultaneously.
