Barnoldswick cyclist Lucy Horrocks enjoyed another good result at the weekend in the second round of the National Trophy series in Southampton.

Lucy, 14, had a comfortable win in the first race in Shrewsbury a fortnight ago, and was second in Southampton behind Maddie Gammons - a second year under 16 rider who rides for Bourne Wheelers.

On a dry and fast course, Lucy had a very good start and gained a lead, but Maddie put in a huge effort half way through the race and caught Lucy, passing on the final lap, though Lucy retained her leader’s jersey which she will wear in Durham in three weeks’ time.

This weekend Lucy is racing with a team in Belgium, which will be a new experience for her.
