Trophies were presented by the chairman, C J Knowles, and guest-of-honour Kathy Griffiths.

Will Dorsett scooped five of the 16 trophies. He is the most successful rider in the club and has been a regular winner of club events over the past few years.

Close behind was Guy Thorold, who won four trophies in his first trophy-winning year and it will be tough for him to match his successes in 2010 as the competition is already gearing up.
