Osiglia Italy 2009

  Alex Peters - Joseph Alberti - Tao Geoghegan Hart - Clem Berrill - Kyroah Pang - Keir Apperley

Thanks to generous funding from the Stuart Feakins Trust and further support from the Youth Opportunities Fund, a four day CCH trip to Italy went ahead that produced many useful results and outcomes. On Sunday 6th September four youth riders (Alex Peters, Tao Geoghegan Hart, Clem Berrill & Kyroah Pang) and their two accompanying coaches (Joseph Alberti & Keir Apperley) took part in the focal point of this trip: the 9th Delbono Memorial road race in Osiglia, Liguria.
The last 10km included a special sprint point or prime and two hefty climbs. Around 150 started, all CCH riders finished in good positions with four riders in the top forty. Hackney's youths took the top three places in their category, their youngest taking the best young rider award and the squad was 4th in the team rankings.
CCH were well received and enjoyed a warm welcome that they are planning to reciprocate when the invited group come to London next year.

"The idea was to introduce our talented young riders to the passion of continental Italian cycling and increase their interest in cycle sport for the future."

Herne Hill Invasion!

30 CCH members descended on Herne Hill velodrome last Wednesday afternoon, 20 riders were youth reps most of who were going onto a proper track for the first time. Many parents came with their cars. The weather was not ideal on the day, it was cloudy and windy, looking like rain at any time. We were in showers but luckily there was a gap of dryness that gave us a chance to run the session from 3pm - 4.30pm, then the rain stopped play. Velo Club Londres's Jason Cattermole was the lead coach, with him the whole group were inducted and are now able to train and race there when it's open.
