The third round of the National Disability and Para-cycling Road Series saw wins for Ben Watson, Archie Atkinson and Millie Cass on a technical circuit in Wyke.
Ben Watson (Para-T) managed to claim first place in the hotly contested C3 class, beating first round rival Charlie Stanton-Stock (Loughborough Students CC) into second place. Stanton-Stock put in a great performance, but was unable to catch the powerful Watson, who sprinted into first place solo. Ben Hetherington (HUUB WattShop) claimed third.

Sajjad Meghjee and Ben Payne (Maidenhead and District CC) came in second and third, respectively.
The men’s C5 event saw Finlay Webb (Exeter Wheelers) take the win ahead of Thomas Williams (Whitchurch Shropshire CC) and Josh Peachment, while Rebecca Newark (Contiki Velo Bavarian RT) took the women’s win.
