THERE was a triple bill of trophy awards for Sunderland Clarion’s chairman Chris Barnard when he hosted the club’s annual dinner.

Held at the Sea Hotel, South Shields, Chris claimed the Road Race Champion Trophy and the Leamside nine-mile TT Series award. These two victories saw him also win the club’s Novice Champion trophy.

The time trial trophies were spread among a number of awards, with Iain Beveridge, who could not be there, claiming the David Craig Memorial Trophy.

This victory also led him to win the club’s 25-mile Time Trial Champion Trophy.
