Chris Matson (YH Training Scarborough Road Club) was the latest Scarborough rider to podium in the YHT SRC Autumn Twilight Series, staged in York.

Matson crossed the line in second in the opening fourth category race, just missing out on top spot in the bunch sprint.

Will Palmer (Richardsons CC) joined Matson taking part in his first ever circuit race, finishing in 30th place.

Daryl Maffey and Jamie Ward (YHT SRC) joined local youngster Cavan Walker (ACRE RT) in the 2/3/4 race, unfortunately for Walker his race was over before it started, crashing out in the warm-up laps.

Ward and Maffey were competitive throughout the race, both finishing in the top 20 in the bunch sprint.

The in-form Matson followed up his podium finish in the Twilight Series by snapping up eighth place in the York Cycleworks Season Ender races held at York Sport Village.
