Brendan Drewett is flying high at the top of the Portsmouth Cycle Track League standings after the first two rounds.

Victory in race one and second place on Wednesday has put the Fareham Wheelers talent at the summit of the 20-week series.

His club-mate Harvey Morcombe is second in the overall standings, although it was Joe Truman – of Portsmouth-based i-team/KSL/inTandem – who claimed glory in this week’s race.

The top under-14 rider after the second round is i-team’s Thamana Nel, while Fareham Wheelers top the under-12 standings with Vaughan Marris.

Two second places have put him top of the charts – despite club-mate Caitlin Peters winning race one and i-team’s Sam Clark taking Wednesday’s contest.

Fresh from triumph in the Ray Martin Memorial 150 Distance League, Isabella Escalera is chasing glory in the under-10 division.

Consecutive wins have put her clear of i-team’s Adam Potter and Jack Cromie – the latter also boasting the best placing of the under-eight riders.

Rob Bolwell, of VC St Raphael/Waites Contracts, heads the senior 3/4/J3/J4 rankings.

And Primera Sports’ Jay Eastwood heads the elite championship, although Team UK Youth’s Greg Mansell won the latest round.
