The Towy riders youth cycling club were in action in the final round of the Welsh and

South of England Track Omnium championships at the Newport International

Velodrome last weekend. The final round also meant that places were up for grabs

to progress to the British championships later this year. The club had competitors in

all the youth categories for both girls and boys. The riders had to compete in four

different races over the course of the day. The racing started with an individual time-

second overall on the day. Tomos Perkins also raced well throughout the day. The

Towy girls once again took the honours in the U14 girls by taking all three steps on

the podium with Emma Finucane winning her third win by taking 1 st , Dannielle Parker
