A CYCLO-cross star from Wem may test his abilities further afield in 2022 after he sealed his latest West Midlands Cyclo Cross League title.

Isaac Vickery completed rounds 12 and 13 to cap off his season with eight wins and two runners-up as 10 of his best results out of the 13 were totted up for his victory.

With a muddy end to the season, Isaac's dad Richard set the scene for the final two rounds and added that while the national scene is still not an option, he may look at other areas to race.

"This year’s cyclo-cross season has been relatively free of mud until the last two races of the series," said Richard.

"Cyclo-cross is a sport best raced in tough conditions to test the riders resolve and technical skills not just endurance but deep sticky or sloppy mud is what a cyclo-cross rider likes.

"Bridgnorth CC hosted Round 12 at Coombe Farm, Highley on a farm field previously used for motocross.

"The course ventured over some of the motocross obstacles and through what is known as a spiral of doom where the riders ride clockwise into a taped concentric spiral and exit it anti-clockwise – it makes you dizzy just watching them.

"With the weather bitter cold and the ground heavy with sticky mud Isaac had to work very hard for his win.

"Pulse Events hosted the last round of the WMCCL series at Lakeside Campus, Worcester.

"What is usually a flat, fast course became a mud fest making it by far the hardest race of the season.

"With a figure of eight and steep bank that both better reflected an ice skating rink than a cycle track, Isaac had to use all of his bike handling skills and strength to again take the win."

"Racing against the best boys and girls in the Midlands and Wales, some more than a year older than Isaac, he has retained his WMCCL Regional championship and won the league by some distance."

Isaac will now prepare for the cross-country mountain bike will come out ready for the Cannock Chase Winter Warmer on Sunday, February 27.
