Thrills spills and pit crews- round 3 of the National Cyclocross Trophy was held at Ardingly in Sussex and in which the club was represented by Hans van Nierop in the vets 40-49 and Dom Switzer the U14. Heavy rain in the preceding days and over the weekend ensured it would be a muddy event. On Saturday Hans was gridded on the 6th row, found the technical course challenging very much enjoyed battling on the slippy course and finished a very creditable 53rd. Further overnight rain ensured that Sunday’s U14 race was a mud fest, with most riders crashing or facing technical difficulties at some point and having to pit on 2 or 3 occasions it was a exciting race. Dom finished a pleasing 16th. Both riders had a great weekend, enjoyed a team curry and Hans generously supported Dom in the pits.
