ON-FORM Steve Chmiewliski shrugged off the tough conditions to consolidate his second place in the season-long Weston Wheelers' midweek points championship.Despite a tough headwind in the opening leg, he crossed the chequered flag in 24.48 to push his season's point tally to 56.Steaming ahead in the midweek championship is Mark Ashurst, who was once again the fastest finisher. He averaged 26.35mph to finish in 22.46 to consolidate his lead.Third fastest for the Wheelers was Rob Heathcote (25.13), who was just a slender six seconds ahead of Rich Harrison (25.19), but Harrison had the last laugh, holding a one point advantage in the season-long championship.Other Weston finishers were: N Williams (26.06), P Burns (26.16), M Dell (26.39), C Gough (27.59) and P Pearce (29.02).Chmiewliski took his fine form into the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers' three-up team time trial, joining up with fellow Weston team mates Steve Summerhayes and Rich Harrison to capture fourth place. They made the most of the tranquil conditions on the Dorset course to finish the 25-mile race against the clock in 57.29, producing an average speed of more than 26mph.Wheelers' three-wheel expert Wayne Baker captured a top 10 spot in the World tricycle championships in Asse, Belgium. He had to settle for seventh place in the time trial, after fading in the second half of the race. With temperatures soaring into the high 30s for the afternoon criterium, he was one of just 12 finishers in a high-speed attacking race, eventually taking ninth spot.This gave him an overall finishing position of eighth with Bristol's Dave Keene successfully defending his world crown.Baker took his good form into the national police 10-mile championship at Andover, where on two wheels he produced a lifetime best 22.06 (27.19mph).For further information on Weston Wheelers, log on to www.westonwheelers.co.uk
