With the rain affecting many events there were few results to report last week, but things changed to hot and dry.

Jon Talbot rode a strong 22.26 in the wind at Six Mile Bottom near Newmarket in the Eastern Counties Championship ‘10’ along with the Murleys, husband Carl and wife Becky, on 24.08 and 24.26 respectively continuing their domestic battle (on the road) making it 4-3 in Carl’s favour so far this season.
