Round 1

Ross Cullen was on top form as he posted the fastest lap of the day to take the win, whilst Paddy Sharrock showed off some amazing manual skills during the weekend produced a great performance to take second, and finally Ed Moore showed some awesome speed to take third.

The Olympic and World Champion Beth Shriever was in a class of her own breaking into the 29 second lap times on both days. Emily Hutt rode very consistent all day and had a well deserved second place, and Betsy Bax who was competing in her first year of Championship Women rounded off the podium with a great third place finish.

Alex Talbott went on to take the win in the Junior Men's final after edging out Renato Da Silva in the first berm with Adam Gilbert rounding of the podium to take third.

Cal Strickland had a nasty crash but luckily was able to walk away with just cuts and bruises.

Both Emily Hutt and Betsy Bax went onto repeat their achievements from Saturday - finishing second and third. A special mention goes to the two new riders in this category - Morgan Haslam and Ava Brown - who showed some great potential.

The Junior Men's Final got off to a great start with four riders bar-to-bar as they dropped into the first berm. This time it was the turn of Renato Da Silva to take victory after a great pass around the outside of Alex Talbott in the first berm. Hardknox rider Ashton Cooper went onto produce his fastest lap of the day to take third place.
