As an alternative to League action, some hardy BRATs entered the Midland XC Championship at Stafford and achieved very encouraging results. These championships are open to all the clubs in our local leagues as well as other clubs from the South, East and North Midlands, so competition is tough. The races were run through an evil mixture of slush and liquid mud as the recent snow started to thaw, so getting much grip was nigh on impossible.

The men’s XC team finished the season strongly in the final fixture at Birchfield as Jack Gray won the race with a truly impressive run to follow up his 5th place at the BUCS Championships last week. Ed Banks 31, Chris Ashford 51, Tim Carter 66, Mark Ince 81, and Mark Lawlor 108 all had good runs and were the other five counters in the A team, scoring 338 points for 9th place on the day and securing 6th place overall for the season, a brilliant result bearing in mind the Clubs we are competing against.
