Gary Lingard wins the Vet's 40-49 category race.
The South-East & Eastern Cyclo-Cross Championships were held at Hog Hill on Sunday December 5, with CCH represented in all races bar the seniors and womens. Best result of the day was a first place for Gary Lingard in the veterans category where he led from start to finish.
The conditions were extremely boggy with most of the snow having melted in the overnight rain - so lap times were going to be slower than expected. The day started with Logan and Frank going well in the Under 12's followed By Kai and Leonard in the Under 10's.

Plenty of snow around but Ned's feeling the heat.

Alex and Ned on one of the many sections where pushing the bike was quicker than riding.
In the youth race Dan lead home Alex and Ned, whilst CCH's biggest contingent was in the veteran's with Andy, Gary, Harry, Peter and Neil riding the slippery circuit to the common refrain of "come on dad". Congratulations to all those who took part - especially Gary for his excellent win- making sure CCH gets plenty of notice.
