Burnley and Pendle CTC provided marshalls for the event, which attracts a contribution towards our club funds.

A large crowd braved the dark clouds, flashes of lightening and showers to watch this annual event.

The main race was Round 5 of the Elite Circuit Series, were a 70 strong field raced for an hour around the tight 800 metre circuit. The race was won by Dean Downing (Rapha Condor Sharp) ahead of local Barnoldswick rider Ian Wilkinson (Endura Racing) and Olympic gold medallist Ed Clancy (Motorpoint Marshals Pasta). Other local riders included Colne's Olympic bronze medallist Steven Burke and Trawden rider Paul Oldham.
