A strong crowd lined the full length of the classic "Ski Run" track to watch the action up close. Good weather conditions ensured very tight racing - where only the smallest mistake could cost several positions in the final reckoning, although a "best of two runs" format gave everyone a second chance if needed.
In Veterans (40 plus), young-at-heart Roger Smith continued his progression in the racing scene with two consistent runs within 1 second of each other, with a best time of 1:26.38 putting him 18th in class in a field of 24.
In the Masters category (30 to 39) Cheltenham and County had two entrants in Adam Powell and Rich Dade. Both were keen to put in strong performances and after two runs, Rich Dade managed to edge the local battle with a time of 1:13.70 placing him 13th in category, just 4/100ths of a second faster than Adam's time of 1:13.74 which put him 14th out of a field of 51.
Overall some really solid results to build on for club riders at the next round of the series, which takes place at the end of January.
