Our season opener was a Weekend XCO. The course had been fast until the rain came down mid-way through the Women’s race and the Veteran men. They finished with wet kit and lightly splattered with mud. Things quickly turned slippy on top and sticky underneath for the Senior and Junior men. 144 riders took part across the day, with some great racing among each category as riders explored their early season form and maybe wished they’d got a bit more grip.
Full results and all can be found on our results server here. – The youth winner had faster laps than any other rider on the day.
