Ian Field (Hargroves Cycles) won the penultimate round of the British Cycling National Trophy Series in Bradford on Sunday, and with it secured the overall title.

It marks a clean sweep for Field, who has won every round thus far – although it looked as though he had been denied victory in Peel Park, Bradford, as he actually finished second to Killeen. However, Killeen was disqualified from the race after being observed riding through the pit area.

After Killeen’s removal from the results sheet, it was Field who finished ahead of David Fletcher (Pines Cycles-Felt-Enve) in second and Ian Bibby (NFTO) in third.

Eighteen-year-old Evie Richards (T-Mo Racing) finished the women’s race two minutes ahead of series leader Hannah Payton (Kinesis UK) with Bethany Crumpton (Pearl Izumi-Sports Tours) in third.

It’s Richards’ second consecutive win in the series after clinching the previous round in Ipswich.

The National Trophy Series concludes in Milton Keynes on January 17.

    Great riding by Liam. DQ was a little harsh, he went into the pits, his pit crew hadn’t got back in time with a clean bike. He stopped, threw his arm in the air in exasperation and then carried on. He lost time to Ian Field and effectively rode a whole lap on a heavy, mud clogged bike whilst Ian had a clean machine. Rules need to be tempered with common sense at times and be applied consistently. Did any Women get DQ’d? More than one female missed getting a clean bike and rode through the pits.

    It takes a very special type of person to enjoy all that mud congratulations to all.
