National Junior MTB XC Champion Michael Thompson (Hope Factory Racing) secured his first victory in the Yorkshire Points Series on Sunday in a race which was dominated by bright young talent.

The 18-year-old from Teesside was almost two minutes ahead of his nearest rival, Orange Monkey's Billy Harding, the 17-year-old who was the first junior in the race at Centre Vale Park in Todmorden, West Yorkshire. And at the other end of the scale, veteran Ian Taylor (Jedi Cyclesport) completed the podium in third.
