A Busy Weekend of Racing for CCH

Clem heading off down the Hogberg.

Last weekend - the 9th and 10th of April saw a busy weekend of racing for CCH riders. Out west Alex Peters was riding in the 2011 Junior Tour of Bristol, he came 5th on the 1st stage and 3rd on the second to claim 4th spot overall just 37 seconds off the winner - full details here.

The juniors turned up en masse on their bikes.

Meanwhile close to home 14 of our Juniors and Youth racers rode in the East London Velo Rumble at Hoghill across all categories, top spot being leonard Mitchell's 3rd in the U10s. Later in the afternoon three shall we say older riders rode in the cat' 3/4 followed by a very good showing from Clem Berril taking 3rd place in the E/1/2 race.
Full details here.

Sunday found Rhys Howels working hard in the National B - E1/2/3 road race as part of the ERRL league. Rhys was showing strongly in the lead group of around 20 riders in a very strong field. Unfortunately a mechanical problem saw him dropped after 80km of racing. A quick look at the Eastern Road Race League standings shows CCH still top albeit on equal points with St Ives CC. Our top riders are off to a flyer this season and with more riders from CCH soon to join them and our upcoming race on May 21st in the league we have a lot more to look forward to this season.
