Tom Cornthwaite wins the race and sets new record.
Good conditions underfoot saw a faster race than usual with Tom Cornthwaite cruising to an easy win and a new course record, but with the first three finishers beating the previous record. The other two in the first three were previous winners Mark McGoldrick and Sam Watson. The race and conditions also suited Paul Stevenson of Pudsey & Bramley who, as a V50 finished first overall Vet and 5th overall in the race. An amazing performance.
In the ladies race, last year's Pendle & Burnley Grand Prix Champion, Amy Green, had an easy win with the second fastest ladies time on this course. She was followed home by Claire Cooper of Keighley & Craven & Fiona Hall of Trawden AC.
Of the Barlickers, it was nice to see six of them in the top twenty. Shaun Chew led them home in 6th place, Rob Weir was 10th and showing that he is returning to form, Lucas Payne finished 11th and 3rd overall V40.
