The Finale – Over and out

Each round of the series has brought us new sections of trail and combined them in many wonderful ways, but this evening’s offering was some of the best bits all laced together. Rain had softened the ground to be forgiving and not quite mud so some sections of singletrack really grooved out nicely as the race went on.

Perfectly groomed singletrack through flowers

Leading favourites were back on form with Joe Peake taking another Elite /Expert win for the series and Matt Webber leaving nothing to chance in the overall Veteran40 standings.  Sam Phillips locked out another Vet50 win and Terry Whalley in the Vet60, each for the series. Ben Spurrier was right on race pace for the Sport Men series and category race win.

With Joe Kiely winning Youth A Men and Lucy Manning taking Sport Women series in absentia we enjoyed seeing Claire Beaumont and Lucy May-Gillings race with newcomer Clare Ross. Leading Youth B rider Francis Whatling, also away, was pipped for the series win by LVYCC’s Max Bolton.  Youth women’s series were won by Eleanor Bolton and Lauren Higham who’ve both been right up there with the men, so we hope for more good racing in the women’s categories.  – Please tell your women friends to come along and race next year!

Greasy ground conditions also brought us two casualties with broken bones on the night. Debbie gave her expert first aid and got them walking again and off to hospital. We’ve heard from each of them since and we’re sure they will be back riding soon.

There are many more riders we would like to see more of next time we race the friendly trails. Drop in at the start of May 2018.

Meantime there’s the Summer Cross we’re promoting with that series at Beckenham Place Park on Thursday 3 August and our very special event the Tour of the Cornfields is coming up on Sunday 3 September. This is 100km off-road from the prestigious National Trust venue of Wimpole Hall  – Why not bring the family and let them play while you ride! We take you through four counties, with a fabulous tea and cake stop along the route. If you don’t fancy the wider loop, we offer a 50km option. There are some very nice changes for the 2017 edition but the cost remains low. Spaces are limited to just 300 and we’re getting full…

On with the Final Round results and those all important Series Placings…. but first:-

Here is what’s at stake – Brilliant trophies by Bruce Mackie.
