Ash Coning takes the lead in the White Rose Youth League
On the 9th of June, Ash Coning's hard work and dedication finally paid off as he stormed to an impressive victory in a two man break-away at York Sport Village, as part of the Yorkshire White Rose League. Along with his impressive victory, Ash also picked up enough points to take the lead in the overall classification for the White Rose Youth League ahead of numerous rivals from across Yorkshire and the North of England.
Ash said, "The race was tough but that's what I expected, I'm really pleased with the result and I'm on some good form at the moment.
I would like to thank Parentini and Northern Ride for their support so far this season ensuring I am equipped with some of the best kit available along with providing me with such a great opportunity to race with such great sponsors this season."
Ash first started racing a two years ago and pulled on a Northern Ride jersey during last season. After a tough winter including a training camp in Majorca, Ash has taken his fitness to a new level and we believe that he has some very exciting times ahead of him as a young talent on a bike.

Another Win For Ash Coning!
Thursday the 21st of July saw the 6th round of the Yorkshire White Rose Youth League at York Sport. It was the biggest peloton of the series with over 20 riders in the u16 race. 8km in to the 30km race, Ash Coning attacked the bunch in what later proved to be the winning move. After a long, fast, 22km's of solo racing, Ash stormed across the line over 20 seconds ahead of the peloton with an average speed of 25.1mph and almost 300w. This win saw Ash secure his number one spot in the White Rose series overall for another week. With only a handful of races left in the series, everything is still to play for between Ash and his former team mate Cavan Walker of Acre RT. Northern Ride's, Guy Drabble contested the bunch sprint to gain 6th place in a field of very talented riders - a very commendable effort for such a young rider.
