Report

DAN Thompson was crowned British Under-19 Champion at Birmingham on Wednesday in his first meeting for over two months after a lay-off due to a dislocated shoulder.

Thompson, who had a spell with the Brummies earlier this season, scored 14 points from five rides at Perry Barr which put him into a run-off for the title with Nathan Ablitt.

It was Ablitt who made the better start, but Thompson cut back cleverly off bend two before charging under his rival into bend three, and when Ablitt came to grief Thompson was declared the winner.

Said Thompson: “With this being that first meeting back I knew it was going to be tough. I was really pleased with the way I rode though, and the changes I made along the way.

“Fair play to Nathan as well; I knew before the meeting he was probably going to be my main competitor and I had to keep putting the wins on the board to stay with him.

“I’m glad I’ve been able to win this one in my final year of doing it; I haven’t had much luck in events like this, so to finally get one over the line is a great feeling.”

Thompson’s brother Joe secured the final rostrum place on 12 points by winning his last outing when up against direct rival Ben Trigger, who was joined on the 10-point mark by Freddy Hodder.
