East Cheshire hosted the first competition of the season at somerford park last Sunday, 3rd October.  The day started off very wet and then got considerably worse to the point where we could not get any wetter!!  Those that took part in classes 1 and 3 had to ride in the most awful conditions with driving rain and a cold wind, classes 2 and 4 didn’t have as much rain but the going was very deep by the end of the afternoon even though it was on an all weather surface.  Nevertheless the Flint and Denbigh teams (some of whom were first timers – I hope it hasn’t put you off!!) did very well with the following results.
