Brakman, De Tier and Crawforth, National Trophy cyclo-cross, Derby, 27 November 2011

Series leader Paul Oldham has got the better of Crawforth in every round so far, finishing just one place ahead in each of the previous three rounds to open up an 11 point lead in the overall heading into the fourth round on Sunday.
