C Grade had to deal with the exuberance of youth today with an early attack on the first hill climb. Whilst this fractured the bunch up the hill it quickly cane back together over the remainder of the lap. With some older heads calling the pace shots of the proceeding laps the group stayed and worked together for the remainder of the race to contest a willing sprint finish with Anthony proving to strong for Kai and Jack.
