The club held the 5th round of the National Cross Country series around the Dhoon Quarry.

 

A total of 37 riders lined up on the on a cold but sunny start line to race around one of the best cross country courses on the Island. A course which included two lung busting hauls up and around the top of the Dhoon workings before a series of technical descents led the way to a rather wet loop around the cathedral like belly of the quarry.

 

Once again Nick Corlett reigns supreme with yet another blistering performance ensuring that second placed Daniel Curtis remained nearly 3 minutes behind, with Elliot Baxter looking comfortable in third.

 

Next up is the Expert section with Paul Renshaw winning by just over 10 seconds after a titanic battle with second placed Julian Corlett. Mark Huntchinson rolled in third seeing off Scott Morgan in the process.

 

The Sport Category is has become the most competitive with Lee Gale taking an easy win over Rob Arnold who rode well despite a big crash to finish ahead of Martin Young.

 

Julie Lyness took the win in the Woman’s Sport category, despite being the only entry in this class she continues to hold her own against the other competitors.

 

Showing continuing improvement Olivier Lebrethon took his second win in the Novice category holding off a chasing Toby Flack. Mitch Sargwood in his first race rode to a comfortable third place.

 

Both Kirree Quayle and Colette Skillen battled it out in the woman’s novice class with the former taking the win.

 

Only two juniors battled it out for honours in this class, Joe Haddock and Liam Mazzone both ride at a pace to match the Elite riders with the former taking the win.

 

The club would like to thank all those who marshalled, photographed and helps run the event. Special thanks go to Neil Helks for his time and effort in designing and marking the course.

On this link you will see the kit design and the two PDF’s which are the sizing charts (Please note sizing is smaller that our last kit supplier)  and a list of garments available and the prices.
