Cowton was on the podium on Sunday with a second in the super lightweight race.

It followed a fourth, fifth and sixth in the junior, solo and Cock O’ the North races respectively.

On Saturday, he was third in the junior and fifth in the solo.

Dean Harrison gave a road racing masterclass as he stormed to victory in every one of his races over the weekend and retained his Cock O’ the North title for the third year running.

The meeting also welcomed a parade of European bikes and featured tributes to riders who have died in recent races.
