He won the 10 laps and 20 laps scratch races along with the unknown distance. Ryan Greaves ( Lichfield CCC) won the other A endurance event in the Elimination Race. The overall winner of the league was Thomas Bullock ( Newport CC) who took two second places however he had dominated throughout the season and is a deserved leader and th e first rider for many years to retain his title.
