PORTISHEAD'S James Robinson is the new British Under-10s cycle speedway champion. The 10-year-old took the title with a faultless performance at Bretford, near Coventry.
After notching four heat victories, James secured the British title by beating his nearest rival in an eventual fifth and final ride. Both were on 16 points going into the race. At the first attempt, James and his opponent crashed heavily as they jostled for the lead entering the first bend. Thankfully, both bikes were not damaged, neither rider was injured. In the restart, James raced away and collected the trophy and the official British Cycling winner's white jersey.
James has been racing since he was five years old and has built up a collection of over 50 trophies from events across the country.
This has proved to be another successful season for James. In June, he was s key member of his club side Exeter's, British Under-10 team championship winning line-up and individually he is a clear leader of the British Junior and Youth League and South West Junior Grand Prix series as they both approach their final rounds in Sheffield and Southampton respectively.
