THE MICHELIN XCE FINAL RD WRAP UP

“The Sunny weather played its part in a brilliant last round of the WOR Events organised and promoted Michelin XCE series last Sunday at the clubs superb Rob’s Mount 2 venue near Llanwrst in North Wales. Always offering stunning views of the surrounding mountains, this venue in the sunshine is like no other place on earth with a fantastic 6 mile lap that is as fast and flowing as it is enjoyable and challenging to ride. The 11am start had a committed line up of riders all looking to grab the double points that were up for grabs in this final meeting of the Michelin Championship bujt for those not in the series it was simply a case of enjoying one of the pearlers of the season from the hard working WOR team. Husqvarna mounted George Price was the fastest and smoothest man on the track and took a start to finish win on his mighty 300 2t. Chris Wagstaff on his trusty Yamaha was the top Expert Vet from Runner Up Neil Parry with Waggy also finishing second overall to Price albeit a good 2 and a half minutes adrift finishing on 12 laps.

Ben Key took the win in the Clubman class as he continues to improve event by event. Key completed 12 laps too and was in the end a good distance ahead of Runner up in class, Jordan Berry. Jake Poole in his first ever race went podium with a well deserved 3rd spot. Speacial mention to Jamie Carroll as he was on course to take the class win but sadly lost the race with a DNF as he guzzled too much fuel on the fast course without replacing it.

Chris Berry and David Wright were having a right ding dong in the Clubman Vets with the honours eventually going to Berry with a 30 second advantage at the end of 2 hours plus of full on racing. 3rd in class went to John Jones with another good consistent ride securing some valuable series points.

Over 50’s victory spoils went to Stephen Parry with a neat and purposeful ride that had Runner Up, Duncan Humphrey a good 2 minutes behind with Bronze placed finisher Doug Hall rounding out the podium.

The Venue is called Rob’s Mount and it really was for young Rob Francom as he continues what must be the most improved rider of the year performance at WOR as he took the Sportsman class and a superb 3rd placed overall, Rob will be one to watch in the Clubman class for next season that is for sure. Rob was pushed all the way though by another Rob, this time Young Myatt with not a lot between them come the end. Rob Myatt is another one that will shine as he moves up to the Clubman ranks that’s for sure. Myatt did enough to secure the Sportsman Title overall with his Runner Up place. 3rd in class went to local rider, Ed Fear.

Top Sportsman Vet was Paul Hughes with a faultless display on his TX300 Husqvarna as he comfortably topped Emrys Price and Nick Evans in 2nd and 3rd place respectively.

Top Youth was Archie Collier, going really well on his new 125 2t as he completed 10 laps and had just under a 2 minute advantage over class Runner Up, Sion Hughes. 3rd spot went to Local rider Rooney Moore, really enjoying huis new KTM with the number 1 plate. Steve Farthing put in another winning ride as returned from a long summer holiday to win the Novice group from Dave Moore as Runner Up and Dan Jackson in a well earned 3rd place.

It was another stand out event from WOR as the skills in organisation and the general good feeling atmosphere of the event shone through for all to see.. A great end to a great little series. As always WOR would like to thank the land owners, staff, medics, caterers, sponsors, supporters and most of all the Riders for supporting their events. Well done to all involved .”
