Round 6 was hosted by Numplumz on 7th June in ancient meadows and woodland on the banks of the Nene at Wadenhoe Church.
Following heavy rain during the week before and on the day there were concerns over the course conditions. The rain stopped at about 5.30pm and the course had held up well. The meadow sections had drained well and had the usual hazards of large ant hills, of considerable antiquity, as well as mole hills if you went off line into the long grass. The woodland section was a different story, here the course had become very slippery on some tough climbs and off-camber turns and descents and got more and more challenging and barely rideable in places as the race progressed, but at least it wasn’t too muddy.
Welland Valley riders placed as follows:
- Vet40s: Hans van Nierop 3rd, Austin Smith 17th
- Youth: James Vernon 1st, Will perkins 4th
- Under 23: Louis Jacobson 2nd, Fraser Ayears 4th
- Vet50s: Adrian Killworth 16th
- Ladies: Sarah Vigrow 5th
