Welland Valley Cycling Club

Weekend again :O)

That was a quick week...time to saddle up for another actioned packed weekend on two wheels.... Chain Gang, Whizz Kids, Club run, cyclo-cross league action.
If you don't fancy getting a tad wet you could sit in comfort of your home and watch World Cup cross action from Koksijde on your PC.
This will definitely tempt you into going to Milton Keynes the following Saturday.

West Mids Adventure / Notts & Derby Mud

In the west midlands cyclo cross league event at Blackwell Adventure Centre, near Bromsgrove, the demanding hilly technical course suited the Welland Valley riders well bringing some excellent results.

In the under 10 race Dominic Switzer managed a 6th place amongst some tough competition.Rudy Killworth finished a fine 10th.

In the fast paced under 12s race, Kian Traynor, was 16th, with Nicolas Wood in 20th and Thomas Danvers in 22nd.In the Womens event Sarah Vigrow was 11th with Nicola Traynor 20 seconds behind in 12th.In the Vet 50 Graham Atkins had a storming ride with 3rd place in his age category with 15th overall. Andrew Wood was 18th in age group and 31st overall.In the youth race Louis Jakobson rode confidently to gain 7th place overall, whilst in the vet 40 Adrian Kilworth is finding his form again with 23rd. Jake Jakobson returning from injury an excellent 12th place on his mountain bike.

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.
