Marls Pits XC by Gary Stevens
You either love it or hate it depending how sadistic you are, but either way it's the race you remember the most over the season.
First it was the ladies race. Jackie had another cracker to finish in 23.57, following by Sue 25.02 and Linda 26.39. Kay was next in 31.36 followed by Clare 33.05, who was captured sitting in the mud through the woods.
In the mens race Tim had a superb race to finish 1st V40 in 31.09, followed Neil 34.29 and Simon 35.19. Gareth Jones 37.48 just got the better of Mark Collins 38.08. Dave (38.50) doing his first Marls Pits took a tumble on the hill but just got the better of Gary 39.19 and Scott 39.42.
Mike Carter doing his first ever XC described it as the 'hadest thing he had ever done' clocking 40.29 with Phil finishing well in 41.51.
