Royston Rockets had a fantastic time of it at the British BMX Racing Championships - coming home with two national champions.

In total there were 26 from the club taking part at Derby out of nearly 1,400 riders.

The track is one of the longest in the UK so provided a good challenge for the Rockets squad across the two days of competition.

Day one saw Billy Irwin (cruiser 30-39) finish fourth, Freddie Cadman-Carpenter (cruiser 17-29) come sixth and Annalise Cadman-Carpenter (cruiser 13-16) achieve an eighth place in their finals.

The Royston excitement was saved for day two though with the Cadman-Carpenter's both winning the top prize.

Annalise was the winner in the female 14 group and Freddie took the honours in the male 17-18 category.

A spokeswoman for the club said: "They have both worked and trained so hard this year and deserve every success."

There was also a podium place for Irwin in the 30+ masters, finishing third.

Josh Izzard (male 19-29) and Elizabeth Bown (female 17-29 challenge) finished fifth and seventh to complete a great weekend.

The spokeswoman added: "We are so proud of all our riders and while the Brits is a fun event, it is intense and requires dedication from everyone involved."
