BRAT Men’s XC team set new record

The BRAT men’s XC team continued their marvellous season with another impressive performance at Warley Woods last Saturday, in the third race of the Birmingham League.

With 40 BRAT finishers this was by some margin the biggest Club turnout we have ever seen in a senior XC race, and it made for an amazing atmosphere on the day; before, during and after the race. No other club had anywhere near this turnout, in fact 4 of the clubs didn’t finish B teams.
Results on the day saw the BRAT A team finish 5th and we now lie 4th overall out of 16 teams. We are only 25 points off third place so all to play for in the final race at Leamington.  The B team finished an impressive 4th on the day and also lie 4th overall.

Many thanks to all who turned out to run or support, there seemed to be BRAT supporters everywhere round the course. Well done everyone!

Also special thanks to Michael Gilbride who fulfilled our volunteer official duty at the finish, a vital role to ensure we don’t get a points penalty.

Also many thanks to Toby Gosnall for taking the great photos which are now on the Club’s flickr page at
