The League has been updated with final positions following the final round in Scorton.
Apart from congratulating the worthy winners in all contests, I’m sure everyone would like to echo my personal thanks to Fiona Gilmore who has put in a great effort in maintaining these complex tables.Â The NWCCA would not exist were it not for the efforts of Fiona and those like her – hearty and warm thanks for doing a brilliant job!

Rob Jebb (left) topped another strong day out for NW riders today byt finishing in 3rd place in the senior event at the traditionally muddy venue of Peel Park. Â The NW’s Ian Bibby came in 4th in only his seconf ‘cross appearance on the season, whilst Lewis Craven finished 6th, with Paul Oldham in 9th.Â Other NW finishers on the tough course were Dave Haygarth, Dave Brailsford and Richard Sale.
Roy Hunt again romped to a seemingly easy victory in the over 50s event, whilst Jeff Standley was 7th.Â Ray Pugh and John Galway also had creditable finishes.Â Duncan Stuart was top NW rider int he V 40 category, finishing 19th.
In the Youth event, Martin Wooffindin finished just 3 and a half minutes down in 16th, with Melissa Bury and Sophie Gore 36th and 38th respectively, and Lewis Barry 45th.
A tough old day at work for everyone who turned up. Not exactly spectator-friendly weather, but some quality racing over a fairly uninspiring course. At least the mud didn’t stick!
Credit to all who helped out in the nasty conditions, and to Manchetsr City Council and Evans Cycles for supporting the event.
