HALESOWEN Cycling Club's Kinga Ingram took victory in a National Omnium qualifier event in Cardiff last weekend.

The Stourport rider secured first place in the under-16 girls event. She came third in the one kilometre time trial, won the scratch race, came second in the elimination race, third in the keirin and scored enough in the points race to take a fine overall first place.

It was also a good day for team-mate Ellie Swingell who took a fine second overall in the under-14 girls event.

Meanwhile, closer to home, Halesowen Cycling Club ran its annual 70-mile road race in Worcestershire.

The popular and competitive event was won by Farley Barber of Provision race team from Jack Rootkin-Gray of Solihull, following a 15-rider break that went away on the second of five laps of the Astley circuit.

Halesowen had four riders in the chasing pack, with Patrick Fotheringham in 20th followed by juniors Simon Wyllie, Henry Lloyd-Langston and Josh Field enabling the Halesowen club to maintain their challenge in the West Midlands Road Race League standings.
