The fourth round of the Yorkshire Points Cyclo-Cross series took riders to Huddersfield New College. A cold wind whipped across the venue, but after weeks of dry weather, the mainly grass course was very hard and fast and it produced some exciting racing.

The Senior race was dominated by Robert Watson, who led almost from the start and simply rode away from the rest of the field to record his first win at this level. Junior rider Oli Webster took second after a long battle with Tom Moses, who faded to sixth in the closing stages. Neal Crampton took third after another close battle with Ian Taylor, who was 4th, with Chris Young closing in on fifth place in the last couple of laps. The overall series is shaping up to be one of the best in years, with six or seven riders in contention.

The Vet's race was another Zepnat dominated affair with Matt Denby continuing his 100% record in the series with a fourth straight win. The series title already looks his. Behind him, Steve Barnes showed he's coming into form nicely, holding off Jough Watson for second place. Peter Wilkin was fourth and first over-50. Adela Carter was the first woman in an impressive 18th place.

A big Youth field of 28 started the day's proceedings and it was Ed McParland who once again showed that he's the class act in the category, alongside Joseph Moses. The pair enjoyed another good battle, with McParland winning alone in the end.

The event also featured the popular Yorkshire Under-12 championship and 24 riders went to the start line. Reece Wood was the eventual winner, from Aire Valley RT team-mate Jake Beech, with Joe Parker third. Grace Featham took the girls' title from Hannah Wood and Rebekah Lord. The under-10 and Under-8 winners were Joe Pilling and Sam Murray respectively. The combined field for the three Under-12 races was well over 60 riders.
