Redenham Park, near Andover was the venue for round 6, hosted by Andover Wheelers who laid on a great spread and plenty of refreshment options for hungry riders and support crews.

The course on the country park estate, a mix of grass meadow and twisting, woodland single track with a short tarmac section and a couple of imposing bomb holes. Heavy mid-week rain failed to dampen the course save for a few squirrelly wood sections and the race pace was fast again. The bomb holes certainly played their part though in detonating the race action, claiming a few victims to the steep crater walls!

Back to back wins for Tom and Tilly in the u12 and u10s, Freddie on the u8 boys top step, joined by Samuel in 3rd. Tom and Niclas third and fourth u14 boys with Miles breaking into the top ten as a first year u16.

Tom Budden was back in action after injury in the v40 men, onto the podium in 3rd place and ex-Sotonia youth rider, Max Darnton (Nova RT) took his first win in the Junior men.

In the v50 men, Jon Hall took an early flyer but was pegged back by the eventual winner. Chairman Phil Wliks continued his fine run of top tens with 8th in the senior men. Gemma Wilks 7th Senior woman.

Well done everyone!
