Off Camber XC Winter Series Rnd 5, Report, Results, Pictures


Paul Hopkins (Merida) won round 5 of the OFF—CAMBER XC series but was made to fight all the way for his latest victory. Seventeen year old James Davey (Hot Pursuit Cycles) took the race to Hopkins, putting the national veterans champion under pressure from the start.

The young downhiller from Exeter, in his first year of cross-country racing, showed no fear as he opened up a gap of 16 seconds on Hopkins after the first of three 4.8 mile laps. Shaftesbury-based Hopkins is not used to chasing but he was forced to dig deep to keep Davey in sight through the woods. Roland Tilley (Ride.co.uk), in third, was already over three minutes down. The course at Inside Park near Blandford Forum is never really technical, mostly broad woodland trails and single track snaking through thIS off-season caravan park.

However, plenty of mud & tree roots require attention and the right line is essential. Hopkins used his experience on the more demanding sections to close the gap on Davey to just 1 second going into the final lap. The youngster had rattled the veteran but perhaps youthful enthusiasm got the better of Davey. Trying to put the pressure on he got his line wrong and came down hard. Hopkins got his line right and rode away to his third victory in the series, securing the overall title with one round remaining. Davey is an exciting talent and a name to keep an eye on this season. Tilley had an early battle with Andy Parsons (Off Camber) but proved too strong as the race wore on. The biggest field of the series so far, 73, enjoyed the sunshine and the snowdrops in the woods promised spring is on the way.
