BRADFORD rider Dean Harrison was back on the winners podium with a hat-trick of victories in the Barry Sheene Classic at Oliver's Mount.

The motorbike speedster celebrated a career high back in June when he won the Senior TT Race on the Isle of Man.

Harrison also dominated the Southern 100 road races last month - also on the Isle of Man - and continued his purple patch closer to home at the Scarborough venue.

He claimed a classic superbike triple success in difficult weather conditions, beating second-placed Lee Johnston by 45 seconds for his opening triumph after defending Barry Sheene Trophy winner David Bell had to retire.

The Silicone Engineering Kawasaki rider - a former pupil of Hanson School - held off Johnston again in his second victory with Pete Boast in third.

And he completed his dominant clean sweep with victory in the Feature race to complete his hat-trick with over 18 seconds to spare.

Bell finally overcame his technical difficulties to claim second with Johnston back in third.
