Cyclo Cross Races Sept. 2018 Report

Seacroft Wheelers hosted the 4th round of the Kinesis Winter Cyclo Cross Races at Temple Newsam on Sunday 23rd September 2018 as part of the Y.C.C.A. Yorkshire Points series.

Over 500 riders took part in 6 races from Under 8’s,10’s,12’s, Youth, Ladies, Novice, Seniors through to Vets categories. The technically challenging course benefited from near perfect conditions weather wise, well unless you like your Cross bottom bracket deep in mud 😉
Local clubs were well represented with  Ilkley, Otley, York Cycle Works, Clifton, Leeds Mercury, Harrogate Nova there to name just a few.

Some fiercely competitive races, especially the under 8’s ! 😉 In the seniors Graham Briggs (JLT Condor) won the day and Lily Greenhalgh (PH-MAS/Paul Milnes) for the ladies.  Happy to report no major incidents/injuries aside from the odd puncture here and there and a few snapped chains. A big thank you to all the organisers, helpers and marshalls that made this event happen 🙂
