Well done to James Vickers who placed 6th in the last round of the Pedal Pushers 4th category circuit racing at Yarborough today. James was in contention for the win as he moved to the front of the pack and strung them all out on the bell lap, however a sudden dose of cramp on the final corner left him unable to contest the sprint. Good work also from Justin Atkinson who is pleased to have tested the 4th cat waters.
