Below are the final results for the MTB Race. Many thanks due to Steve H for working through the fine details of the TT and race and determining overall positions.
Well done to all competitors, quite different riding conditions and so a new experience for many of our riders.
Big round of applause for Dave , Alex and Joe for their work in CONSTRUCTING and setting out the course. Dave is a human excavator.. available for hire for anyone wanting to dig out footings etc ! Amazing work and we have a super facility that we will be using more over the summer months.
The attached document gives an outline of the activities that we will be doing over the next couple of months - it has information about our Go-Race activities and other important dates.
Please download a copy and put the dates in your diary.
Please bring your road bike on Saturday for a road skills assessment session. You will be observed riding in groups, braking, cornering and handling your bike on the road - don't those tyres feel skinny after months on cyclocross rubber?
The coaches will be observing and feeding back to riders areas for improvement and we will use the information to help design the coaching sessions over the coming months.
This Saturday is the last Cyclocross session of the season - that is usually a signal for snow and ice, so let's hope that the weather man is not reading this!
Category A and B riders who are confident MTB riders - please bring your mountain bikes to ride the trails that Dave & Co. have been making, to help prepare them for hte Go-Race MTB race next week.
So we have had two events and the riding has been fantastic.
Great grit show by all riders, (including all the parents), who braved the fierce wind at round two.
Round three is on 1st March, details on the BC site. results to date presented below. (Oops incorrect file had been uploaded, resulst of rnd 1 , rnd 2 and positions to date no being shown in pdf).
No session at Hetton this Saturday so it's off to Castle Eden for one of the last muddy social rides of the season!
There's no sign on just bring your cross or mountain bike and ride. You can even drag a parent along if you like.
We'll be leaving from Castle Eden, the location of the car park is opposite the Castle Eden Inn and is shown in the two maps attached, (The Village Hall Car Park). Please remember to park in the carpark shown as we are not allowed to park in the one that is adjacent (The Lodge car park ).
UPDATED The Youth A, B and Junior category group will undertake mount and dismount improvement, followed by forced dismounts and running; and then on 25th January we'll do power and endurance climbing before our last Go-Ride cyclo cross race on Saturday 1st February.
