TEENAGER Mike Taylor has been crowned the British Unicycle Trials champion.

After three years of claiming second place, the 18-year-old, clinched the title at the Dynamix centre in Gateshead.

Mike, from Frampton West, cleared 29 out of the 30 trial sections to come out top from a frield of 35 one-wheeled competitors.

He also claimed the highjump contest (with a leap of 1.31m) and the long jump (2.75m).

However, Mike narrowly missed out on a clean sweep as he was runner-up in the street championships.
