Williams tackles one of Mallory's muddy banks
Williams had to work his way up through the field from a poor grid position. By which time the leaders had made a gap which Williams would need to bridge before joning them. Williams joined the leaders just before Frenchamn Bazin attacked and cracked his rivals with a big acceleration early in the second half of the race. Williams finished in front of some big name and he will look to keep on building on his current form ready for the Welsh Championships in December and the National Champs in January.
