The final round of the 2009 British Mountain Bike series was the centre-piece of a packed weekend of action at the ever-popular Newnham Park venue near Plymouth, with XC relay racing, the Newnham 60 Enduro and a night Cyclo-Cross race also adding to the mix. But first up was that all-important final run out for the country's leading XC racers before the winter break.


Rider Comments - find out what the riders had to say after a hard day's racing on the tough Newnham course. Amongst the many riders Joolze Dymond spoke to were Gunn-Rita Dahle, Oli Beckingsale and Annie Last.

Elite race reports

Perhaps the race of the day came in the Elite women's category. A cracking field that included multi world champion Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesja, had something of an end of era feel about it. Regular contenders Mel Spath and Jenn O'Connor were lining up for the last time before returning to their native Germany and New Zealand, respectively. And with a new generation of riders coming through, the dynamics of this category are likely to be very different when it re-convenes next spring.

But, back to the racing, and it was Kate Potter who led the field out of the arena and as they all came round at the end of the lap, she and Annie Last were some 20 seconds clear of a group of three, featuring Sue Clarke, Mel Spath and Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesja.

Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesja was a welcome addition to the women's field

Kate and Annie continued to bash out the quickest laps throughout, working together at times, but also looking for opportunities to pressure each other. Annie was looking very good on the many technical descents, whilst Kate was trying to use her strength to stretch the younger rider on the climbs. But it was all to no avail and the pair of them came into the finish straight still together and finally, Last was able to make the decisive move, showing all her hunger and aggression in a sprint which Kate simply couldn't match.

Sue Clarke broke free of her companions on the second laps and soloed in to finish in third, with Mel Spath fourth. Gunn-Rita Dahel Flesja cruised into fifth.

The Norwegian legend was happy with her day's work at the finish, as she builds back up to full fitness after the birth of her son, Bjorn, back in April. She was particularly happy to be back at Newnham, the venue fore her first ever World Cup race and also her first World Cup win. And based on her past exploits and her current determination to get back to 100%, don't write off a return to the very top of the sport for her in 2010.

Jenny Copnall was sixth and missed out on the overall series win - a prize she has made her own in recent years - which went to Kate Potter. Just behind her was Maddie Horton, who put in yet another great ride. Maddie plans to up her training significantly for 2010, so she's anothe r looking to be in the mix next season.

Oli Beckingsale doing what he does best - climbing!

The elite men's race was also a cracker. The Newnham course had been cranked up to its most tricky by organizer Martyn Salt, with the re-introduction of the famous pipeline descent and some more tricky jumps and corners in the bluebell wood. Throw in the presence of Liam Killeen and two top-class Czech visitors, Jiri Hudecek and Kristian Hynek and the scene was set for some pretty challenging racing.

Off the start it was Oli Beckingsale and Lee Williams leading the field up the first climb, with Hynek, Dave Fletcher and Hudecek hard on their heels.

As the race settled down, it was Beckingsale and Hynek who began to dominate, knocking out a series of very fast laps. Liam Killeen is reported to have crashed - probably on the pipeline descent - and although he carried on, a ripped jersey was testament to the force of the crash and he eventually retired after three laps.

Lee Williams paid a little for his fast start and gradually drifted backwards to finish a still impressive sixth. Paul Oldham, who was badly handicapped by a recently dislocated shoulder, started steadily, but worked his way through in the later stages to finish a deserved fifth.

Back near the front of the race, Fletcher and Hudecek were in touch with the leaders for much of the race. Flecher in particular looked very strong over the last couple of laps.

However, the battle for the win was to take unexpected turn, when on the last lap Hynek, who had been with Beckingsale throughout, picked up a puncture. Beckingsale was able to cruise in for what was in the end, a very impressive and comfortable win. Hudecek just held off Fletcher to take second, whist Hynek did a good job fixing the flat and coming in fourth.

Round-up of the other categories

The expert women's category saw a new winner, with Maxine Filby taking it by two minutes from Emma Smith, who has otherwise dominated the season. Filby is coming to the end of a remarkable first year of racing, which has seen her move rapidly through the ranks, from sport to expert.

With Scott Thwaites, who has been unbeatable this season, absent, the expert men's race was there for the taking. Sion O'Boyle has been runner up too many times to mention this year, but even without Scott racing, he was doomed once again to be second, behind Giles Drake, with Phil Lenney in third. The word on Scott Thwaites is that he's leaving his off-road roots and concentrating on the road in future. He's a very talented rider and a big loss to both Mountain biking and 'Cross, where he has excelled.

This year's Junior men's category has seen some epic encounters between Steve James and Kenta Gallagher. However, this time James was in a class of his own, steaming away from the start, never to be seen again. Despite starting after them, he caught the entire expert field and was working his way through the elites when he crossed the line. Gallagher was having a bit of an off day, so the battle for second was wide open, with Luke Gray coming through to claim it, a nice result following his recent recovery from a broken pelvis. Nat Jarvis was a popular third.

Ruby Miller was once again in a class of her own in the Junior women's race, winning by a clear 5 minutes: she too looks set to turn her back on off-road competition in favour of Road and Track.

In the Grand-veteran races, Debbie Burton was the only female competitor. However, as ever, the men's race was one of the best, with Ian Wright taking a narrow win over Gregor Grant, with the living legend that is Roy Hunt third. Roy's again hinting at retirement, but it would be a great shame to lose such a popular and whole-hearted competitor.

The Juvenile races saw relatively straight-forward wins for Lucy Grant and Ben Miller, both by over a minute. Grant Ferguson was almost three minutes clear in the Youth male race, a huge margin in a 3 lap race. However, Katy Winton and Hannah Barnes had an amazing battle in the Youth female race. Katy got off to a flyer and was 22 seconds up at the bell, but Hannah came roaring back at her and only missed out on the win by 2 seconds.

In the Vets' races, Anna Murray looked totally at home on the tricky Newnham course tin the women's race by a clear four and a half minutes from Nicky Hughes. The men's race was somewhat closer, with Lewis King and Richard john having a very close battle until just after the half-way mark, when Lewis broke clear and went on to win by 22 seconds. Vic Barnett won the Super-vets race.

In the Masters' categories, Alli Northcott, who has until recently been more associated with riding the road and before that, adventure racing, was a runaway winner of the women's race, some three minutes clear of Kim Hurst. Phil Morris took a tense men's race: he had Matt Dennis and Matt Barrett for company for 3 laps. Matt Barratt cracked first, conceding almost two and half minutes to Phil in the last 2 laps. Matt Dennis was a tougher nut, hanging on just off Phil's wheel for most of the last two laps, but he was ultimately unable to bridge the gap and lost by just 15 seconds.
