It went from beautiful sunshine to driving rain high up on the hills of Addingham Moorside. Conditions varied from the nice dry grippy rocks to pretty slippy and testing sandy hillsides.
Mr consistant Mick Kettlewell cleaned up the easy course dropping just 15 marks, followed by the ever improving Ian Exley.
Clubmen course honours went to Dave Pemby Pemberton who stepped down a level due to a faulty clutch, with Acklams Motorcyles top team rider and ex world champion Paul Sadler just being pipped to first place on most cleans.
The hard course was convincingly won by son of Paul, Joel Sadler, on just 10 marks which was impressive due to the severity of the sections.
