The Clayton Road Champion 2013 is Jonny McKenna who was first past the post in 3 races; fantastic achievement in his 1st competitive year as a harrier. In 2nd place with a number of fantastic performances over the races was Breton Holdsworth and road Capt.Brewster capped off a good 2013 with a 3rd place finish in the championship.
