HARTLEPOOL cyclist Adam Brooks is celebrating after claiming his best result of a memorable season so far.

Manilla Cycling Team’s Brooks, who also doubles up as the Teesside outfit’s head coach, finished third in the Cycle Development North East (CDNE) Prissick Evening Series 3 and 4 category race.

The 28-year-old was led into the final sprint by team-mate Paul Sill and once he left Sill’s wheel he sprinted for third place at the Middlesbrough Cycle Circuit.

There was also a good result for fellow Poolie Jon Moran in the past week.

At the SASMI series at the Nissan test track, Sunderland, Moran picked up his first ranking points of the season with tenth place.

In the same race Richard Danks came third to secure his first podium of the season.

The category three race at Nissan was won by Manilla’s Adam McManus, with Ryan Pugh picking up fourth place to add to his growing list of impressive results in his debut season.

The results rounded up the best 10 days of the season for Manilla who lead the North-East points classification.

Manilla are hosting a 30-mile social ride this coming Saturday (August 2) leaving Hutton Rudby’s Bay Horse Pub at 10am.

Anyone, male or female, interested in getting into competitive cycling is encouraged to take part.
