The 2019 Mudstacle season is underway and we have our first set of results and standings for you. For 2019 not only is it a new season, but a new format for the league. If you missed our announcement at the start of the year lets get you caught up. After consultation with a number of competitors from previous seasons we decided on some changes: 2019 will be a single league season from February - November rather than having separate winter and summer seasons. This also means we will be looking at your top 5 results rather than top 3 to take into account the longer season and greater spread and volume of events.
The season Kicked off on February 23rd with Brutal at Bordon and saw a number of familiar faces vying for to get some early points on the board with stong performances from Daniel Titcomb of Elements Elite alongside Nuclear Phoenix's Dasos and James Burton With Mudstacle Machines Aeron Charity continuing his injury comeback with a solid race. Team Nuts Michelle Nixon took home 1st for an early season boost.
Winter Nuts saw the return of Conor Hancock to take on 4 laps for the first time since 2016 and it was a dominant performance finishing the course in an asonishing 3:49 with Kate Stillwell similarly dominant in the womens race. The Sprint on Saturday saw Nicki Johnson record her first win of the season with Laura Heywood and Michele Nixon again performing well.
