Men Win @ XC League (07/12/2013)

After what could best be described as an 'under par' performance at the first league race, Tipton were back firing on all cylinders.  As the squad assembled in the bright sunshine at Abington Park, everyone quickly realised that we could be in for a good day.  Excellent packing at the front end of the race saw Ade Holliday in 3rd, followed by Mike Aspinall, Rich Kay and Ben Gamble in 7th, 8th and 9th places.  Ian Williams was 5th man home in 19th, and the scoring 6 was rounded off with Phil Wilson in 29th place, a 60 place improvement on his previous best league performance.  The 75 point total gave the green and whites a significant win over second placed Loughborough.  In the overall standings, Tipton are up from 6th to 2nd - albeit 149 points adrift of Loughborough.
