The man-made banks at Liveridge Hill provided a tough event for the competitors, with rain adding to the test by creating muddy conditions.

Barnes said: “When we arrived at the course it seemed really muddy but by the time we raced it had completely dried out.

“It was a tough course with the banks and I went hard from the start and got a gap so kept pushing on from there.

“I was a bit annoyed last week as I crashed which allowed Lewis Askey to get a away from me so it was nice to get a second win.”

There was more joy for Lichfield as Daniel Barnes finished as the second junior.
