Beaumont and Wherry cap off perfect HSBC UK | National Four Cross Series weekends

Home » Mountain Bike (MTB)

Scott Beaumont and Megan Wherry completed perfect weekends with back-to-back wins in a scorching HSBC UK | National Four Cross Series in Falmouth.

With the track looking in fantastic condition, and a freshly cut section of track towards the end of the course, the stage was set for an exciting sixth round after the drama of round five on Saturday.

Carrying on where he left of, Beaumont produced a masterclass in leading from the front to take a clean sweep of all of his motos as well as the semi-final.

Despite his hand injury, Beaumont was back on form, taking the win in an exciting Men’s elite field.

Connor Hudson and Will Evans took second and third, followed by Tom Bell in fourth and Daniel Wagstaff in fifth.

Evans and Charles Currie had to have a run off to see who qualified for the Elite Men’s A Final with the two Cornish men putting on some of the closest racing seen all weekend, only for a mistake by Currie to allow Evans to proceed to the A Final.

Their style of shoulder to shoulder racing was very much the order of the day throughout the classes.

Wherry shows her class

Much like Saturday's round five, the slightly reduced numbers in the Women’s Elite field meant that the Elite Women would join the Men’s Veteran field for Sunday's racing.

Wherry once again showed her dominance this weekend by not only winning the Women’s field but taking the fourth place in the Veteran Men’s category.

Overcoming a crash in her motos and surviving a run off against Elite Women’s second place Courtney Abiss, Wherry never looked out of place amongst the Men’s field.

Courtney Abbiss was hot on Wherry's wheels taking second place in the Women’s Elite field, followed by Hannah Escott.

The Junior Men’s field, much like the women’s, became combined with the Senior Men seeing William Mills also complete the double this weekend at Falmouth taking the win over James Leach, who was competing in his first ever 4X race.

Ruben Masi was once again on the podium in third along with Fynn Watson in fourth.

It was a credit to all that the weekend went without major incident and ran smoothly, with all riders looking forward to coming back to Falmouth next year for more of the same.
