A STRONG west-northwest wind battered the riders for the Guernsey Motorcycle & Car Club’s sixth outing of the season.

The 47 competitors would see 12 sections set among the pine forests and surrounding land at Pleinmont, with hidden tree roots making the riders extra vigilant as they looked to tackle the task ahead.

The juniors and pre 65s rode the slopes in the morning.

Expert riders Sammy Bott and Ben Le Page continue to trade blows in this class.

This week would see Bott holding his nerve as took the win from a downhearted Le Page who will return fully charged after the Christmas break.
