Round 6 WMCCL-race reports

Race report from supported rider Daniel Barnes
Yesterday was round 6 of the WMCCL league at Baggeridge. In practice laps the course was damp and the bikes were picking up lots of grass. However by my race it was much drier and a much faster, less slippery course. I led off the start and pushed on for half a lap only taking one other rider with me which I expected because he’s won 4 of the rounds . . . → To Read More Click : Round 6 WMCCL-race reports

This was sometime ago and it may be appropriate to remind families about the screening programme.

National Trophy CX Race – Round 1 Derby 7th October 2017

Race report from supported rider Matthew Kingston

I was gridded second row, got a really good start and was 8th into the first corner which was really fast.
I held this position until we went into the sand pit section where I made a mistake of not attacking the sand fast enough and had to get off and run, costing me a few positions.
I was also cautious on the first lap as it took time . . . → To Read More Click : National Trophy CX Race – Round 1 Derby 7th October 2017

National Trophy Round 1

Race report from supported rider Daniel Barnes
Yesterday I went to the course in Derby to practise for round 1 of the National Trophy series.

Going into the race today I was very confident that I knew the best . . . → To Read More Click : National Trophy Round 1
