done to all those that competed in the National XC Champs at Alton
Towers on Saturday. The conditions were the toughest I’ve ever seen!
boys performed extremely well with some outstanding individual
Skinner won the silver medal finishing 2nd , only 20 seconds off the
winner. Although slightly disappointed afterwards I’m sure he will
reflect well on his great performance.
Bentley, Andy Rayner and Alex Gibbins ran really well all finishing to
the top 76 and Jack Swallow and Ben Harding brought the team home with
scoring six brought the club home in 8th place in the team event.

with 60 club members in attendance.
