For the second year running, Greg Tognarelli (VC Cumbria) gave a commanding performance in the sunshine to win the second event of the 2013 Cumbria Summer Cyclo Cross series at Whinlatter Mountain Bike Centre.
The 43-year-old Workington veteran took the verdict ahead of host club rider Tim Irlam (Cyclewise) with Colin James (Beacon Wheelers) in third place. Penny Kingsland (Beacon Wheelers) was first woman.
Michael Hall (Furness Future Flyers) was a convincing winner of the Youth race ahead of Brady Stone (Cyclewise) and Christian Partridge (Penrith), while George Ball (Furness Future Flyers) stormed round to take the Under-12 honours from Barnaby Walkingshaw (Beacon Wheelers) and Adam Bent (Border City Wheelers).
Once again a number of riders took the opportunity to try their hand at cycle racing for the first time at the Whinlatter venue which was used by permission of the Forestry Commission.
