BARNSLEY cyclist Damien Clayton won the Danum Trophy in Doncaster at the weekend, continuing his good start to the season.

The 31-year-old former architect from Cawthorne finished first in the 65-mile event.

It followed on from a race win in the Peak District last month

Clayton said: “I felt good all day. I enjoy the crosswind and being able to make it hard suits me as a rider.

“I am Barnsley born and bred so it’s good to get my name on the winners list with all the Donny guys in the past.

“The form is there. I will just keep doing what I am doing and enjoying it.

“I don’t really race for money but it’s good prize money when you’re winning so it makes it financially viable.”

Jenson Young, from Hemingfield, was 16th in the same race.
