Less than 2 weeks ago cyclo-cross courses were fast and hard....courses are now muddy (fast for some, a slog for others) and tough.
Today Round 9 of the Notts and Derby League was staged at The National Watersport Centre, Holme Pierrepont. The course featured strength sapping meadows and technical woodland sections. Jake Hubbard is starting to produce back to back performances, 16th today is a 'good' result.
Katie Hubbard loved the mud and rode strongly to finish 15th Female. Hans van Nierop once again suffered a mechanical disaster, this time the issue happened on the final lap meaning Hans ran the final half lap proving his winter running regime is well worth it.
Hans sprinted across the line in 53rd place.
