Guernsey won in four of the five classes, but Jersey were missing some of their top riders who were competing in France.
At Edern, in Brittany, Ryan Gregory (14 today) won the Brittany Championships in the Minimes Class and Daniel Moon was second and Chris Le Marquand finished sixth.
The senior inter-insular at Sorel did not go ahead, as Guernsey would not accept the team named by Jersey as it included a 125 cc rider and Guernsey wanted a 250 cc rider.
Usually the Inter-Insular class is up to 250 cc, so now, because of Guernsey’s refusal to ride, this event may not take place until next year.TENNIS – There were mixed fortunes for Jersey’s veterans in the annual inter-insular.
