The 29-year-old from Upton, who won last week’s Clayton Vale cross in Manchester, bagged another win, this time at the expense of Scott Wilson (Manchester Wheelers).

Under-23 ace Martin Woffindin (CS Pendle) took third in the senior race, while fourth spot went to junior rider Bryn Davies (unattached).

Pete Middleton (Zepnat RT) won the veterans race while Adrian Lawrence (Team Elite) was second, and fastest female was Rebecca Preece (Contessa Scott Syncros) in 22nd spot.

Velocity RT rider Adam Hartley was fastest in the youth race, with Joseph Peatfield (Bolton Hot Wheels) second, while Tim Jones (CS Pendle) took third and just held off first Under-14 rider Alistair Leivers who was fourth.

Best of the girls was Nicole Clarke (Birkenhead North End CC) in 13th overall.
