British champion Jack Price finished on top with seven points at the end of the JMC & LCC’s annual event, after he edged out the legend of the sport and 12-time world champion Dougie Lampkin MBE, who won the BSA Cup for second place, and Toby Martyn.

Richard Pallot, champion in 2018, took home the Maine Cup as the highest-placed Jersey rider, after finishing fourth in the expert class, with Yeo Vale over-40s trophy going to Nick Life.

Organiser Stewart Le Breton hailed the event a success, despite the weekend being hit by wet and windy weather.

He said a number of competitors came from different areas and that the top riders will be back again in 12 months’ time.

‘It all went really well considering the weather was not the greatest,’ said Le Breton.

‘We had a lot of riders over from England and France which was good, we had women riders as well.

‘And we had some of the world’s best who enjoyed and said they will be coming back.

‘Some of the sections had a few problems on Sunday but everything went down okay.

‘We probably had about 120 riders in total, the majority were men with a few women.

‘Most of the riders were from the Channel Islands but it was great to have a 12-time world champion with us and it made for a great spectacle.’
