Woodstock 12 – 2018

An historic race through the beautiful grounds of Bleneheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A great turnout for our home race on Saturday. All of our valuable marshals and helpers did a fantastic job in making it another well organised event. Tegs Jones of Witney won despite feirce competition from club-mate Sam Upton who was one second behind, with Harrier James Bolton very close behind him. Rhodie Jones was the first lady back, closely followed by Jessica Bruce.
