The weather was benign, but the mud was be-loody awful! This race had been picked as the Yorkshire Championship race, so a strong field eventually lined up near the tarn, for this AS category fell race of just over 5 miles.
There was a decent turn-out from the Black and Whites, including a welcome return to the vest for Sharron Smith.
The race and championship was won by Tom Adams (Ilkley 37.24), returning from a spell off racing, and the super-fast Victoria Wilkinson (Bingley 42.58).
