Provisional Results - https://my.raceresult.com/174814/results
A great days racing on a new course set out by Andy Thomson and his team. A proper enduro style event with forest, quarry and mud to keep the riders interested.
The Expert class was won by Fraser Flockhart looking very rapid but kept honest by Ian Bisset who won the start hole shot and finished just 4 minutes down on the day. Ben Thomson came home in 3rd after a spell in the pits and put in some very fast times to catch up and also finish on11 laps- all riders on 11 laps - one lap clear of the pack.
In the over 40's Ian Bisset had to fight for the win with James Harvey only 10 seconds behind. Graham Paxton had a rare outing and was rewarded with 3rd. Mark Ritchie unfortunately had a dnf - despite wearing his England top in place of his usual Newcastle one.
The over 50's was another tight race with Andy Dean taking the win from Rick McVicker just 10 second back. Robbie Allan continues to impress with 3rd.
The Clubman class was won by Ryan Paxton ahead of James Burns and Anthony Turner
Clubman B is a a hotly contested class. Callum Davidson won on the day pushed hard by Robert Graham on the same lap and then Tommy Drennan one lap down
The Sportsman was won by Andrew Murdoch with newcomer Robbie Gray just one lap down with David Macgillavray in 3rd
The popular over 50's was won by Mick Robson. Dene Happell took 2nd with Mike Glass in 3rd.
Thanks to SBEC for a great day out on a new course. Thanks to the landowner for the use of the farm.
