CCXL R5 – Stanborough Delivers Again

Youth B start - photos with thanks to Keith Perry

Thanks to the efforts of Susi, Francis and a host of willing volunteers working throughout the weekend, Welwyn Wheelers hosted another successful day of Cyclo-cross at Stanborough Park with round 5 of the CCXL on Sunday.

Graeme again came up with a testing course which, with a mix of weather conditions from biblical rain to sunshine, kept riders guessing all day. Proper mud, which changed from being wet to ‘claggy’ during the day, ensured a proper test with time to be gained or lost each lap depending on when the decision to run was made. Pit crews were delighted to be kept very busy. The catering was excellent. The music, dominated by Richard’s ‘Wigan Pier’ retrospective and balanced with the banging tunes in ‘Velobants corner’, was well received. The racing entertained, with a huge turnout in each race.

CX will return to Stanborough Park on Dec 8th for the Eastern & Central Regional Cyclo-Cross Championships.
