Damian Prisk is the new Auto-Sleepers Tour 2012/2013 British Bodyboard Club champion.
With the Tour ultimately curtailed from six down to the minimum three scoring events, each one took on added significance and the riders that made the extra effort to prioritise the tour ultimately reaped the benefits.
Retaining his title from 2011, Damian Prisk stormed to victory in 2012/2013, after wins at both Portreath and Porthtowan, and a forth place finish at Tolcarne.
Close competition for the second and third place spots saw six riders, nose-to-tail within 150 points of each other. But squeezing into second place was Aaron Dinham, on 990 points, just ahead of Rob Barber, on 920, who had edged out Jack Johns by 15 points.
In the Women's tour, Olivia Smedley dominated proceedings by placing first in each event - the first time since the Tour has been in place that a clean-sweep 1,500 points has been achieved. Tabby Fox followed in second, with Megan Penny closely on her heels in third.
The Drop-Knee was keenly contested, but whilst Laurie McCall took out the Portreath and Porthtowan events, the consistent Andrew Hill sealed the tour win with three podium finishes. Alex Winkworth taking third, as these three dominated the points scoring.
