Provisional Results

Sunday the 21st of April saw the first race in the 2XC Hot Pursuit cycles / Scott series take place atHaldonForest nearExeter. Good weather over the last few days meant the going was soft to firm through the many technical sections on the course. Race 1 was for Under 16s and Open categories with riders completing 2 laps on the same route as the later race for over 16s who competed over 4 laps.

 

Youth rider Joe Taylor (Clevedon & District CC) demonstrated the difference a few years makes by riding away from the younger riders to take the U16s overall and bag a good points total for the national round coming up in the South West.  Kris Caines (Yoevil CC) was second Youth with Ollie George in third. Harry Birchill (Mid Devon CC / Colin Lewis Cycles) took the Junvenile win, with Sam Pearson(South Fork Racing) a close second and Charlie Owen third. Patsy Caines (Yoevil CC) won the juvenile girls race followed by Evie Long in second.

 

In the Open class the sure to hotly contested series points went to Duncan Baldie, followed by Rob Stevens and Mark Trewin. Riders not competing in this round of the series should note that only four of the five rounds count toward the series so there is still time to take part.

 

As race 2 started things had got chillier on the top of Haldon hill. The sun had disappeared and the competitors were eager to start. With the field close together on the first lap, the 50 riders made quite a sight completing the initial singletrack sections but clearly local riders Luke Eggar (South Fork Racing) the eventual winner, Steve Birch (Juicy Lubes Racing) and James Davey (Hot Pursuits Cycles / Scott) were keen to stretch the front of the race.

 

By the second lap Paul Hopkins (MeridaUK) was smoothly building a lead in the veteran category. A close battle between James Bovey (Mid Devon CC / Colin Lewis Cycles) and Gary Andrews (Certini) for the remaining veteran’s podium positions developed as the race progressed but ended with bad look for James, a puncture ruining his day.

 

Junior Lucy Allen(FullySussed/Certini) rode well having moved up to the Junior category this year, finishing 21st. Catriona Ross took the veteran female category with a good gap over Cathrine Killburn (Exeter Mountain Bike club) and Jackie Shute (Exeter Mountain Bike club). The female sport category was won by Carly Portlock (Bamboo Bikes) with Penny Allen (Yogi Cycling) taking the grand veteran prize.

 

As the four laps were completed Luke Eggar took victory by nearly 3 minutes from Paul Hopkins, first veteran, who lead Mike Tomlinson (South Fork Racing) first master by a minute. Tony Davis (Dream Cycling) won the grand veteran competition.

 

Thanks to all the competitors for taking part and the all the help provided by the marshals. More information on the series can be found at www.2xc.org.uk.
