Another great day for NW riders – who took the first three places in the senior event and the team prize, third year running, for Wheelbase.
Ian Bibby (SIS) rode a strong and confident race, waiting until the race on a muddy, challenging course at Bishops Burton college had settled down before riding away from Colne’s Paul Oldham (Hope). Rob Jebb (Wheelbase) stayed in close contact but couldn’t close the gap on Oldham.
Cumbrian Marie Stuart was the second woman, whilst NW riders took 1st places in U12 boys, U12 girls, and U10 boys. Martin Woffindin was best NW rider in the youth race, having to settle for the scraps left by a Team Marie Curie 1-2-3. Jack Bowyer took 1st place for the U14 boys and Melissa Bury finished 2nd for the U14 girls. Dan Wheelan also just missed out on 3rd place in the U14 boys, taking 4th place.
