Cornwall OSET Cup 2022 Round 5
30th April 2022
BOWIE SINKINSON making a splash !!
The fifth and penultimate round of the Cornwall OSET Cup was held at Garker Woods, St Austell on Saturday 28th May in again baking sunshine and bone-dry conditions. The date of this event unfortunately clashed with the extended Jubilee Bank Holiday / Half Term and many regular riders were on what must be most welcome holidays, but we still had 28 riders line up at the start and welcomed another newcomer, 6 yr old Jenson Daw.
With the unusual dry conditions some very challenging sections were able to be re-introduced to this series and soon took marks from the usual low scorers.
CHARLIE RIDDELL picks the correct route !!
9-year-old Samuel Millmore again did well to keep his score to 42 with fellow 9 years George Turner on 67 and Riley Holloway who has just moved up to the Hard Course on 80. All classes were well down on usual numbers but the 6-year group on the Medium Course had a great day with Josh Dustow emerging the victor with a splendid ride to lose just 24 marks and second place was a day long battle between Charlie Riddell and Kyle Bateman which ended in a tie with both on 39 marks apiece leaving Riley Wales to take the third spot on 46 marks. The 6-year group on the Easy Course also had a great day and regular winner William Lewis lost more marks than usual over these dry and challenging sections but still stamped his authority with 36 marks, with second place Tully Gleave another 11 marks behind.
If you go down to the woods today watch out for EDDY HOLLOWAY !!
