Scott Holmes and Andrew Barnes rode the 50+ Cat and both rode strong but an early break went of 3 riders and despite lots of efforts to forge another group the bunch stayed together.With the bunch Sprinting for 4th place Scott took 8th with Andy finishing in the main pack.
Peter Jones rode in the 65+ and returning home from holiday in the morning probably cost him the race as in the bunch sprint for the champs he cramped up to take 8th as well. So two disappointed riders but always next year ?
