One minute later the under 16’s and women started together. George Crocombe (Hadleigh MTB) returned to the series with another win with a gun to flag victory catching and passing most of the adult male field. The race for 2nd was much closer with Harry Bates (Hadleigh MTB), Alex Kings (Flitch Bikes) and Harrison Darley (Hadleigh MTB) all lapping within a couple of seconds of each other before a mechanical issue hit Harrison coming up the finish straight to finish lap 6 allowing the other 2 to pull clear. Harry eventually finished 2 seconds clear of Alex to take 2nd place.
The women race split up quite quickly with Susan Woods (Hadleigh MTB) taking an early lead which she built on during the race and took the eventual win with Jo Hitchen (Wings for Life) in 2nd and Jane Brockman (Hadleigh MTB) in 3rd. This results really closed things up in the championship with any of the top 3 still in with a chance to take the overall with just 2 rounds to go. Kess Claxton again took the win in the under 16’s female class which gives her an unusable lead in the overall.
The next round is at Hadleigh Park on the 28/06/16
