The St Ives Cycling Club star ruled supreme in the ‘B’ Category - for competitors aged between 45 and 49 - at the recent League of Veteran Racing Cyclists (LVRC) National Track Championships in Derby.

Kierman won medals in all four the events he contested during a hectic three days in the saddle.

He began his challenge with silver in the Match Sprinting discipline before winning the 60 lap Points Race, claiming three of the six sprints along the way.

He added a bronze medal to his collection in the 3km Individual Pursuit before grabbing silver in the closing 15km Scratch Race to secure his top billing overall.
