Firstly, a huge thank you to those who turned up to put up and take down the tent. This is something that is always appreciated by the team but even more so on a day that had such monstrous weather conditions. Full results are attached, but in summary we were able to secure 4th in the Senior Men in both the 6th and 12 to score. First home and continuing to show great form in his debut season was Micah Evans in 23rd. He was closely followed up by Alex Gibbins in 30th who put in a strong finish to ensure he put experience over youth, finishing 2 seconds in front of Tom Desborough (several decades his junior). Roger Vilardell came in not too long after this in 37th, with Dan Kennedy working hard to stay on his heels in 40th. Graeme Lugar decided to leave his bike at home this year and clearly benefited to round out the 6 to score in 46th. All the training was also paying off for Darren Corneille, coming home in 55th. Simon Harris was next in 90th place with Gregory Firth not far behind in 97th. Roger Beswick managed to recover from some early race struggles to make his way through the field in to 137th leading a cluster of B&B athletes with Jason Meers in 138th and Blair Wilson in 142nd . Chris Tuck then just about finished in 150th, followed up by Rich Byford in 172nd, both asking why they didn’t have something better to do on a Saturday afternoon. Many thanks to all who took part and supported on the day. The next event is the SEAA XC at Beckenham Place Park on Saturday 28th January – lets hope for more pleasant conditions!
