JACK Parkinson-Blackburn wrapped up his first ever full maximum as Birmingham beat King's Lynn 54-36 in Norfolk.

The 16-year-old won all six of his outings as the Surestop Brummies began their National League title defence in ultimate style.

After securing four heat advantages in the opening five races, the Brummies lead by 14 points and never looked back.

While the full team chipped in, it was Parkinson-Blackburn who stole the show with a faultless display.

He said: "I'm so happy to finally get my first full max and it couldn't have been timed much better!
"The last few days have been so frustrating and a little bit disheartening to be honest because I wrote one bike off and severely damaged my other at the weekend.

"I've got a busy week ahead of me and that's why I pulled out of Tuesday's British Under-21 Semi-Final.

"I was absolutely gutted to have to do that because that was one of my goals for the season - to go there and finish in the top three there.

"But my team places with Birmingham and Sheffield have to come first; Birmingham have done a lot for me so it was only right that I made them my priority.

"I'm just glad that the hard work rushing to put a bike together has paid off.

"Obviously I'm so happy with how my own night went, but more importantly it was a great result for the whole club as well."
