The young Welwyn Wheeler started the day with first in the two-lap time trial before following that with a win in the elimination race.

And strong showings in the remaining events, the scratch race, sprint and points race, means he tops the U14 standings ahead of the final round at Lee Valley in May.

Team-mate Oli Stockwell was third in the U16 group having placed second in all bar one of the five events while Dylan Starkey took second in the U12 category.

Elsewhere some gutsy riding took Beth Bennett to third in the U14 girls while Tom Sharples narrowly missed out on the most combative rider of the day.

Finlay Woodliffe, Thomas Dixon, Sasha Blendis, Caelen Miller, Toby Brown, Callum Moir, Ellen Bennett, Iona Moir, Archie Peet, Joe Kiely and Rizwan Hameed also raced.
