After the wettest weekend that most locals have ever seen, (one guy quoted he had never had to use a spike tyre before!) the final race runs had to be cancelled so we assume positions are awarded based on qualifying results. The weather deteriorated the whole way through qualifying giving those riders who set off early a bit of an advantage over those who slogged it out in the storm. The start hut was moved down to the half way point due to problems with medical access, meaning riders started straight into a lengthy flat pedalling section with most of the tracks technical sections remaining in the top half and unridden today.
Qualifying results here:
The Dirt Norco Team made the journey out here without team mate Ben who had to remain at home to rest his hand after sustaining an injury a few weeks ago. The national race was good practise for Stanny, although our fingers are crossed for better weather next week in preparation for the World Cup!
