Roseberry Topping Fell Race – 12/09/12
On a slippery night following earlier down pours the juniors dominated proceedings. Jack Willis, a previous winner 2 years ago when he was 13, came back to claim another clear victory. New Marske’s Sam Garratt (M16) had an excellent run to finish 3rd with Aidan Rigby (M14) coming home 15th. In the ladies race, Kay Neesam came home 3rd, beaten by Bronwen Owen (M16) and Emma Clapton (F14) from Scarborough.
This race was the final counter in the NEHRA summer series with Kay Neesam claiming both the Overall Women and V45 win. Shelli Gordon was 3rd overall and 1st open lady. Along with Kath Aspin and Sharon Bulman the ladies claimed the series team win for New Marske. David Heath was 4th overall in the V40 category, Mick McGurk 4th in the v55, Colin Scollay 4th v60, Ronnie Sherwood 1st v70 and Phil Miles 2nd v70.
The video is well worth watching to see the different downhill styles and to see the dive worthy of Tom Daley at about 7:30mins!
