Rob Tyas recently achieved 5th place in the National 400m Grass Track Championships at York Racecourse.

Rob narrowly missed a place in the four man sprint final but won the minor final for fifth place. Boggy conditions meant that the race was often won by the rider who reached the first bend in the lead as overtaking at speed was very difficult. The event was won by experienced trackman Ben Elliott (VC St aphael). On the same day Rob narrowly won the 800m handicap, just pipping up-and-coming Norfolk rider Jack Withington onthe line.
