The first race back after the extended COVID recess was one for old school racers who thrive when the racing conditions are at their worst. With overnight forecasts looking really grim, many who has signed up to race turned off their alarms which left it to the hard core and race depraved to fight it out in the cold and wet. The racing matched the conditions, with every field decimated by the end by hard riding and riders came to the line in dribs and drabs.

Congratulations to everyone who braved the weather and experienced some proper winter bike racing. Massive Thankyou’s to all the volunteers who turned up and stood around in the rain making sure that the racing could go ahead and was a safe for all.
