Eastern Region Intensive Youth Cyclo-Cross training session – Hosted by Welwyn Wheelers – Gosling Sports Park – Saturday 10th December 9:30am – 12pm

Welwyn Wheelers will be hosting the next Eastern Region Contenders Cyclo-Cross training session this coming Saturday. This session is designed for our best youth riders in the region to prepare them for national level competition. They are intensive training sessions that enable riders to work with others of a similar standard and identify weaknesses that can be worked on in club sessions. Where possible we will bring in expert coaches and riders to help with the sessions.

Riders are expected to be racing Cyclo-Cross regularly and have their own Cyclo-Cross bike. Riders must be in the Youth (U16 & U14) categories or first Year Juniors. Sign on @9am at Trackside Gosling Velodrome. Session Fee £5

There are still a few places available although the session is limited to 20 riders so please book in advance with Mark Wyer in advance via e-mail: markwyer@britishcycling.org.uk or contact me directly.

Cyclo-Cross Event

Many thanks to all members who helped at the Central League Cyclo Cross event on Saturday.

It was a hugely successful event with over 400 riders taking part.
We have received some excellent feedback both on the course and how professionally the event ran. We have also received compliments on our cheerful and supportive marshals.

This could not have been done without the 50 plus members/ parents who helped out with set up on the Friday and Saturday
with set up , marshaled, worked on sign on, catering, calling, recording and take down and put away – as well as those who provided the delicious baked goods.

It is a lot of work to put on an event like this and we are grateful for all the help received. It is particularly gratifying to see some of our newer members volunteering for the first time.

Thank you to those that volunteered (in no particular order):
