CYCLING: King’s Lynn bicycle motocross rider Alan Hill is celebrating a pair of national titles after an impressive display in Peckham in the seventh and eighth rounds of the British BMX series.

Hill got his first double-double of the season with wins in the veterans and 45-49 cruiser classes to wrap up both titles with four rounds remaining.

It means his trophy cabinet now boasts 26 national and 46 British titles, with his focus now firmly set on winning his third global title at the World Championships in Zolder, Belgium, next month. 

Kyle Hill also had a fairly good weekend with third and second place finishes in the 15/16 cruiser finals, keeping himself within reach of the national title.

It is closely contested between three other riders and the title could go down to the last round. 

The racing was tough with only 16 riders so every lap counted to go straight through to the final eight. On Saturday he was one place off making the final but made up for it on the Sunday with third, fourth and third places to secure his place in the final, where he came seventh. 

Jared Hill, still riding high on confidence, got off to a good start on Saturday with moto wins and a first in the quarter but mistimed the start in the semi-final and hit the gate. 

He tried to find his way back but missed out on making the final, going on to win the B final with a commanding lead. 

On Sunday, Jared stayed consistent with second places in his motos, quarter and semi. 

In the final, a tangle with another rider put him near the back of the pack. Despite his best efforts to make up some ground, he finished seventh. 

The Hill family will make the long journey up to Glasgow for rounds nine and 10.
