RD10 Grand Final Report, Pics & Photos

10.2.13 Hetton 304The Grand Final was set around the Country Park of Hetton Lyons. There was two courses set out to challenge todays riders. First up as normal was the U12’s using a smaller course on the flatter land near to the wheel taking in some technical singletrack through the woods. P Errinton was away from the start to hold a gap for the full race over B Dowson. 3rd place went to S Graham after a good battle from the start. There was a great mix of ages and all had a good ride. They all got a goodie bag afterwards. On to the U16/14’s racing on the full adults course J Howard led from start to get 1st U16 & A Brown came in 1st U14. Again all riders were presented with cash & goodie bag. Onto the main race and wind was picking up & starting to cloud over but the┬ácourse held up very well considering with only a couple of muddy sections over the long lap of approx 1.60miles. M Worton led from the start with C Ash struggling to catch up but the gap was getting smaller each lap. With a couple of laps to go and a few spots of rain starting to fall C Ash pulled through to take the win. A Burridge had a fantastic race and finished 2nd before going home down under. R Smith was 3rd and 1st V40, G Wells 1st V50, J Carr 1st V60. Full results are done & overall League tables will be done asap, you can find them in the Results Section.
