Are in, the points have been calculated and we have our 15/16 Champions.

The amount of work that these people have put in to achieve these results is absolutely amazing, but a BRILLIANT JOB for every single competitor who took on all weathers that the Isle of Man could throw at them.  All the roots, mud, rocks, and not forgetting the blood, sweat, tears and probably quite a few beers (other beverages are available).

So the top 3 are as follows:

Ladies: 1st Julie Lyness, 2nd Sarah Jewell, 3rd Kate Priest

Senior Elite Men: 1st Nick Corlett, 2nd Daniel Curtis, 3rd Gary Kirby

Senior Expert Men: 1st David Curtis, 2nd Jeff Plowman, 3rd Jamie Dudley (all moving to elite for 16/17)

Senior Sport Men: 1st Shaun Cannan, 2nd Bob Kinvig, 3rd Kevan Gelling (all moving to expert for 16/17)

Senior Novice Men: 1st Ralph Jackson, 2nd Jason O'Connor, 3rd Jeff Shipsides (all moving to sport for 16/17)

Anyone else can of course change class as well :)

2016/17 is shaping up to have a number of different formats, with the hopeful re-introduction of Trailquests, and pre winter evening series of racing and a post "worst of winter" series of racing.  We will hopefully have more "marathon" type events as most people really enjoyed the two peaks.  The monthly Sunday morning events will probably not continue.  If you feel strongly about this please email the Chair at nigel@manxmtb.com
