Giddings wins for Coventry team

Derby's Geoff Giddings, riding for Coventry-based Team Endura Thule, has won the National Cyclo-Cross Series for the third year in a row.

In the final event of the series in his hometown, Giddings finished second in a two-up sprint with national champion Noel Clough.

But Giddings won the Overall Series by more than 20 points.

Overnight rain had made the course very muddy, requiring riders to change machines twice a lap.

Wootton Wawen-based rider Martine Verweij finished eighth in the women's race, improving on her performance of 18th in last week's National Championship.

Tim Stow from Wellesbourne also improved, coming 12th in the over-50 race.
