In the under 19 event Scott Millward will be battling in the qualifier on Saturday. Facing 24 other keen riders looking to take the winning jersey Millward will have to be on top of his game from the start to make sure he gets enough points to make the final. Welsh Internationals Ben Mould, Marc Carmichael are in the lineup alongside the Kemp brothers and also Poole’s Tom Reed who has previously won the title. Scott has finished 3rd and 2nd in the past so will be eager to finish one better!
