Braintree riders dominated the 11-year-olds with the top five places going to the clubs riders, Tom Stokes, Lee Butson, Jake Coombs, Joseph Carter4th, and Alfie Giles.

Riding in with the boys following her fantastic third place at the European Championships was Bethany Shriever who stole the show in the 13 year olds to take first place.

The 15-16 classes commenced with the girls and Lana Redgewell had looked on course for a podium finish, but a slip up in the fourth race of the day saw her settle for fourth with club mate Isabel Potter riding in with the older girls to secure sixth.

Last up was the 17+ payback class which saw Oliver Cutmore continue his winning ways and romp home to the C final win.
