“I feel very good but tired,” said Gregory.

“The course was tough, very hilly and uneven in places. We’ve done this event before, but not this course.”

Connolly added: “It was mucky in places as well.”

Their medal success was reward for the hard work they are putting into the sport.

Gregory said: “On days like this it does feel all the effort in training is worthwhile.”

And Connolly, while casting her eye over to the hills, joked: “Sometimes I do question why I do the sport, but other than that it’s all good.”
