Mandy Simpson reports: Despite gale force winds and rain over 60 Scottish athletes braved the Vosseler course. Final results are below.

We had one casualty before the start with Ryan Hunt breaking his arm in the warm up - get better soon, Ryan!

Congratulations to our winners: Tina Harris in Senior Women who won by a clear lap of the finishing field, Cameron Goldsmid in Senior Men with an equally impressive lead. Grant McLean in MM40, James Turner in MM50, Graeme Lear in MM60 and Cassie Sutherland in WU20.  Tricia Sloan, I think, could have won the MW35 if it hadn't been for a slight mistake on where the course went right at the end. Lots of people made that mistake during the day.

In the teams events, Scottish won Senior Men and Senior Women, MM40, MM60 and MW50. Overall, a great day despite the weather and a good warm up for the rest of the cross country season.
