Cyclocross: Central League Round 1 Hillingdon 30.9.12.
Great turnout at Hillingdon today. Kay and Clare did well in the Youth/Novice race. Both looked to be going well when I turned up, although Kay was saying how relieved she was it was only a 30 minute race!
Elwyn (first race), Martin Winter, Andrew Granger, George Kirkin, James Leach, Mac and Duncan rode in the Senior/Vets race. Quite a big field, probably 100+, including some top Elite riders like Mick Bell, on hard, very bumpy course.
We did the club proud.
