2018 Mercia Champtoipnship races and rules

2018 Mercia Championship races and rules are now available here.

Mercia Club Champs 2018

Here are the races and rules for 2018.

The races are:

Trig Points Results

Results for the Cannock Chase Trigs points race are available here.

Sundays Trig Race was run in dry but bitterly cold conditions with the ground being generally good. A close finish saw Rob Little use his local knowledge to just keep out Mercia's Paul Jones. It is understood that some sub optimal routes were run by them in efforts to confuse/loose the other. Certainly their legs showed signs of gorse and brambles not found on the tracks.

Mornig After Results

The results for the 2018 running of the Morning After race are available here.
