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¬†course 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.

Rd8 6.1.13 431This is a new venue to CX racing in NE this season and has proved to be very popular with a fantastic mix of all types of terrain. The course was set out on the¬†most solid¬†under tyre¬†terrian¬†that was aviable on the day which inc some steep climbs, plenty off chamber corners and switchbacks etc. The U12’s did a shortened course on the flatter lower field. Again B Dowson led from the start and covered 4 laps in 10.50mins. D Holmes came in 2nd (1st U10). There was a battle for¬†3rd and 4th place between A Brown who held¬†3rd place until the last lap where¬†S Graham¬†pulled through to get¬†3rd overall. A Brown was¬†4th (2nd U10). All the kids got some goodies in the barn presentation. Onto the U16/14/Novice Lady race, this was based on the full course. J Mann led from the start¬†and had a clear win covering 4 laps 10.26min. There was a battle for 2nd & 3rd place with N Hamilton pulling through half way through to get 2nd overall (1st U14) from H Turnball 3rd overall (2d U14) and 1st Novice lady went to T Tucker. Cash prizes and Sponsred prizes were presented at the¬†end inc some goodles as well. Then it was the big boys, the sun came out and was shinning off the hillside course and the riders were eager to get going from the start line. The course became more and more technical as ever lap passed and was probably the best event so far for spectators! C Ash was flying and led from the start to take 1st Sen covering 8 laps in 50.58min, A Nixon held onto 2nd place with a puncture and bike swap 1/2 way through the race and I Gibson 3rd Sen.
