Round 4 doubled as the Northern Champs, the trails and venue had been kept secret until just a few days before the event. 5 Fresh cut stages awaited the 380 entrants. The sun shone and the trails were dusty.
Separate dig teams had worked on the stages to give each a different feel and maximise variety. Steep, techy, fast and gnarly, mega views and a great atmosphere Graythwaite had it all.
