2001 Eastern Regionional Champs Thetford

Adrian Scott, Numplumz.com, secured his second gold medal of the year at this seasons one day EMRA championships. Mayday meadow's singletrack laden course in thetford forest providing the test.

Having taken the sport class race win in the Nationals championship first round here in May, Scott started in a very confident mood. Leading from a fast start, he was soon joined up front by Marcus Schier/ Richmond cycles, the winner of the 2 other national rounds ,and current National series sport leader.

A four lap battle for the lead saw Schier take the front with Scott in his wheeltracks, with Shier pulling out a gap in the final 100 metres to win by 3 secs as Scott could not respond.

Schier a Brazilian riding in this country to obtain an elite licence was not eligable for a medal which only goes to habitants of the Eastern region, So Scott recieved the Gold.
