The sixth race of the Furniture Walk Mountain Bike Race Series, presented by Gubinelli Mendoza Wines, Arch Insurance & Becks Beer, was held at Fort Scaur in Somerset at the weekend.

Andrew Hern placed second and guest racer Kent Richardson took third spot in the veteran class. In the B category, Ziani Burgesson took the honours, with Nicholas Narraway second and Chequan Richardson third. Ashley Robinson was the sole competitor in the women's B race. Jennifer Wilson won the female novice division, while Megan Hinds took the female 13 to 15 class.
