Cyclocross Regional Championships

East Midlands Cyclocross Championships

The East Midlands  Championships were held on the rolling parkland of Markeaton Park in Derby. The course was drier than expected, but was frozen at first. It incorporated rolling grass with off camber turns that cut up as the course thawed and got increasingly difficult for the last two races – the women and the senior and junior men as snow fell heavily in the afternoon.

Welland Valley success came early in the U9 girls as Mea Moore took the win followed by Isabelle Dixey in 4th.

In the Vet40s James Moore fought for 5th, Hans Van Nierop came 11th and Simon Dixey was 25th.

In the Vet50s Mudlarks coach, Kevin Mills was 28th  followed by Adrian Killworth in 34th.

and then the snow came…

and Dom Switzer came 5th in the junior men and Michael Burke was 11th senior.


Central Cyclocross Championships

Meanwhile in cold sunshine at Hillingdon Rob Moore was 13th in the Vet40s.


Eastern Cyclocross Championships

Elsewhere Dennis Smith was busy making the World Masters course muddy by winning the Vet70s in the Eastern champs in Ipswich.
