Splish, splash, splat..

Another wet weekend as the Cyclo-Cross boys and girls continue to battle in various leagues around the country.  

James Garratt rode a near perfect race to win Round 7 of the Central League at Harlington School, Bedford. With very little hard ground the race was run in gloppy conditions. The heavier the rain fell the more the mud turned to liquid. Mid race James misjudged a corner to see him slide down the banking on his belly…a ‘Klinsmann’.   

Returning back to action after a mid-season break enforced by injury, was Vic Barnett who contested the Over 50’s.

Vic rode a measured race using the event as a good quality training event to finish 8th.

Andrew Ayears and Jake Jakobson both endured the glop. Jake finished in the top 20 and Andrew was just outside the top 30 veterans.

Louis Jakobson and Fraser Ayears loved the muddy experience in the youth race, both youngsters show great promise and coped well with the difficult conditions. Louis was 4th , Fraser produced his best ride of the season after suffering an early mechanical problem to respond well and finish just outside the top 20.

Markeaton Park in Derby hosted for round 10 of the Notts & Derby Cross League. Twins Jake and Katie Hubbard experienced a strength sapping course as difficult muddy conditions meant that riders had to cope with constantly clogging bikes.

Katie ran most of the difficult sections towards the end of the 50 minute race. Jake lost a few places compared to previous weeks finishing 28th.

Katie finished 9th with her bike weighing double the weight than when she started.  

Top Barn near Gloucester was the venue for round 10 of the West Midlands Cyclo Cross league. The rain may have stopped by the time the racing started but it was very muddy course the riders had to contend with. Despite this there were some excellent results across all the categories.

 

In the Under 10s category 3 WVCC riders made the the top 10 with Dom Switzer just off a podium position in 4th place and Fay Garner 1 second behind in 5th but first girl and almost 2 minutes clear of her nearest rival. Rudy Killworth had his best result of the season with an excellent 7th despite being one of the youngest riders and racing on the smaller 24 inch wheels.

 

The Under 12s saw Kian Traynor manage 17th place in high quality field with Thomas Danvers in 24th. Eleanor Partridge continues to improve with a fantastic 4th place, just 8 seconds from a podium place.

 

The youth race saw two excellent result with Max Sillifant in 10th and Josh Van Nierop in 14th. In the ladies event Nicola Traynor was 2nd in her category finding the course more the her liking than the previous weeks more technically demanding offering. 

 

In the vets races Graham Atkins fine form continues with a 4th and Adrian Killworth was 20th in their age categories. Scott Rose made a welcome return to racing finishing 9th.

 

There are two more West Midlands league races this season, the next being at Mallory Park in two weeks followed by the Midland Championships the next day in Lincolnshire.
