BURY Comets rider Harry Radford added his name to the history books over the bank holiday weekend with a stunning win in the British Under-12s Championships at Leicester.

Having finished level on points with Kesgrave’s Noah Woodhouse, Radford made no mistake in the run-off to secure his first national title.

The youngster has been a star performer for the Comets all season and indicated his potential at this level when taking the u12s Dash Trophies Championship early in the season.

In the u16s, Adam Turnbull was joint sixth. The captain of Bury’s Division Two side rattled off two wins and a second place to score 14 points, just four behind champion Harrison Bacon and only two off a medal.

In the open-age qualifiers, the toughest of all of the weekend’s action, Kris Ramsden was knocked out at the semi-final stage, with Coventry’s Myke Grimes taking the overall title at a packed Wednesfield circuit in Wolverhampton.

All three of Bury’s entrants were competitive and combative throughout.

This Sunday’s action sees the final round of league fixtures, with Bury travelling to near neighbours Astley & Tyldesley for league deciders in Divisions One and Two, starting at 2pm.

Training continues on Thursdays and Saturdays, with new riders welcome.
