Leicester Cyclocross League – Round 2

Round 2 of the Leicester League was a joint league promotion organised by Dean Barnett at Marston Lodge – home of the Mountain Mayhem 24 hour MTB race.

Heavy rain during the week before had meant that the course had to be amended to avoid the steepest climbs used in Mountain Mayhem as they would have been impossible to get up even on foot on the slick mud. The course was a mixture of sodden grassland, gravel woodland tracks and soggy leaf mulch in the woods. With heavy rain overnight continuing into the morning it was set to be a challenging course. Proper cyclocross had arrived!

  • U9s: Jacob Smith 1st
  • U12s: Jamie Kershaw 3rd boy, Andrew Deathridge 6th boy, Dan Holton DNF
