Report: Snowdon Sports
Grant Ferguson secured victory in the Christmas cross at Callendar Park in Falkirk, organised by GJS Racing Team.
The 18-year-old Boardman Elite rider from Peebles gradually pulled away from the field in the event, which used a great new course at an outstanding new venue which will hopefully be included in next year’s Scottish Series.
He held off Scottish Series overall winner Gareth Montgomerie, the 29-year-old GT Racing rider who settled for second, while talented 16-year-old I-Cycles junior Stuart Wilcox took third, just ahead of top veteran Gary McRae (Leslie Bike Shop).
