Leicester Cyclocross League – Round 1
The Leicester league kicked off with the first hosted by Rockingham Forest CC at West Glebe Park in Corby. The riders were met with typical early season conditions with the sun shining and the ground dry and hard. The course was a mixture of parkland and woods, with some steep climb and descents and promised a fast and furious race – a proper early season test.

Please can you send your race reports to Adrian Killworth – via text, messenger or email – firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be good to have a bit more detail behind the results and some photos if possible. I don’t normally report DNFs, but if you’ve got a heroic story to tell, that would also be good to hear.
If you are not racing in the LCXL and I can’t find you, you will not be in the report. It would be good that if a group of WVCC members were travelling to an event if you could agree for one of you to submit the report.
