Inter-Counties XC – Crofton Park 10/03/12
Ricky 2nd in the Inter- Counties
Ahead of his trip to Kenya this week, Ricky Stevenson was happy with a superb 2nd place in the Inter-Counties championship. As they headed out Ricky was part of a group which included world triathlon champion Jonathan Brownlee. As the field began to split Ricky worked hard to move into 2nd place behind eventual winner Keith Gerrard. Phil Wicks managed to get past Ricky but a strong finish saw him pip Wicks by 5 seconds and finish only 9 seconds behind the winner. The North East Team retained their title. Wayne Parker also ran in the U17 event coming home a good 22nd out of 255 Competitors.
