Sunday 27th September was a beautiful sunny day. The course was a fairly technical one held in the grounds of RAF Halton Cross, with its majestic stately home and formal gardens. The Club’s competitors were cheered on by Mick, Craig H and Ricki who had ridden over to support their fellow club members. This was much appreciated by the competitors!
In the U12s, Kieron Rice-Williams came 13th. A sound start to the season, well done Kieron!
In the Seniors, Paul Smith attempted his first race in a field of over 50. He tackled the technical course very competently, relying on his youthful mountain biking skills. Unfortunately, 40 minutes into the race, Paul punctured. A DNF result was unlucky, but Paul really enjoyed his first taste of CX and says that he will be back!
In the Vet 50 race, Roddy came 38th, well towards the back of the field. He was glad to get around the course without incident however, being somewhat unprepared for the season.
