"We will most likely do the awards again next year," said Singletrack’s Mark Alker.
"We’ll give people a little more notice next time though and of course we will be tightening up the qualifying criteria for a bike shop!"
Dafydd Davies of Coed y Brenin being presented with spiky gong for best UK trail. MC for the evening was Gaviscon-empowered Brant Richards.
