For the second year in succession it was local rider Josh Brain (300 Gas Gas) who swept aside the competition to take the win in his home National at the Manx Two Day Trial.
Losing only 1 mark on Saturday, and remaining clean on the much harder Sunday route Brain had 9 marks in hand over Dan Thorpe (300 JST Gas Gas) with Ben Sprigg (300 MRS Fro Systems Sherco) completing the top 3, a further 9 marks behind.
The father and son pairing of Robin/Sam Luscombe took their 4th successive victory in the Sidecars, taking their 300 Beta around for the loss of only 1 mark. Very close behind were Rupert/Chris Kimber (300 PBS Beta) followed by top Manx crew Jamie Teare/Jane Birchall who only clinched that coveted podium position by way of a tiebreak with Nigel Crellin/Chris Molyneux.
In the Clubman solo class it was Darren Wasley who remained most consistent throughout the weekend to take the win. In what is regarded as the most competitive class, Wasley's loss of 8 marks left him 5 clear of Tom Swindlehurst, who also took the award for best rider under 21 years of age. By contrast the third placed rider, Nigel Crowther took home the Over 50 award.
