Steve Neill competed in the senior category in a field of 55 riders and came 45th. Simon Hardy and Ray Barnett competed in a field of 70 riders in the veterans category 40-49. Barnett came in at 22nd place.

Hardy came 38th in his first cyclo cross event, and commented afterwards: “It was probably the most exhilarating thing I’d done on my bike in a long time.

“Starting at the back of the grid, negotiating fast sweeping off-road descents and carrying the bike up steep muddy climbs was very testing but I was thrilled to finish in 38th place.

“Thanks to all involved in organising the event.”
