Now in its seventh year, for 2011 the event was held for the first time at the Back Cown Quarry north of Manchester for a well demanding ride with many world class riders attending.
First time out on the Rieju MRT250 Pro was Justin Carter who finished the event (no mean feat) overall in 31st position and claimed a credible 17th place in the Expert class.
Also riding a Rieju MRT250 Pro was French guest Mathieu Petit Bourdet who finished 36th overall.
From a field of virtually all two strokes the four stroke Rieju pilots battled hard to gain good results and they look forward to future courses where the two stroke/four stroke divide will be much reduced.
