Whilst the top NW riders battled it out at Mallory Park in the National Trophy (see separate story), Matlock CC visitor Lee Shunburne made off with first place in the Liverpool Mercury ‘cross at Stadt Moers. Short of a Notts and Derby League race to ride with the National Trophy race in nearby Leicestershire, Shunburne took an early lead and made his trip worthwhile.
The best of the NW riders was Will’s Wheels’ John Shaw, whilst Stuart Green enjoyed a welcome return to the podium.
In the Youth race, Ribble Valley’s Lewis Balickyi upset Martin Woffindin’s run of form, whilst Ribble Valley team mate Sam Turton again took the U12 race. Tom Armstron was first U14.
