Science in Sport-Trek rider David Collins, pictured, snatched the lead in the National Trophy Cyclo-Cross Series after finishing third in Sunday?s third round at Kirby Mallory, Leicestershire.
With previous leader and the winner of the first two rounds Paul Oldham (Hope Factory Racing) managing only 10th spot yesterday, Collins now heads the table by 10 points from his rival.
Sunday?s event was won by Holland?s Martin Nijland, who crossed the line 44 seconds ahead of Germany?s Malte Urban, while Collins was another 43 seconds off the pace in third.
Oldham had been challenging for a place on the podium, but faded over the last couple of laps to end with a disappointing 28 points from his afternoon.
Isla Rowntree led a one-two for the Stourbridge CC, beating colleague Louise Robinson to the line on a wet and cold afternoon which gave organisers several headaches with paperwork.
