First CCH win of the year

James on his way to winning.

Well done to James Fairbank who won the Cat3/4 race in ELV's six days of winter crit' series at Hoghill this weekend on January 21st. This is CCH first win of the season let's hope there are many more to come. Ben Brown finished 12th in the same race - maybe we can get a report from one of the lads. Check out Jame's thrillingly tight win in a three man sprint for the line on this video footage here on UK Cyclesport .
All you riders and racers for CCH please remember to send in your results for inclusion on the blog and website. I don't have enough time to go looking for them...

2012 National Cyclo-Cross Championships

Ned crossing the finishing line at Ipswich

Saturday and Sunday last was the national Cyclocross championships held at Chantry park in Ipswich.
The relatively flat 3.5km course led to fast paced and close cyclocross racing with very strong fields and CCHackney riders in three of the races. Andy led the way in the over 50s finishing 39th in his race and 19th in his age category gaining a couple of BC points for his top twenty finish.

Next up were Ned and Mostyn in the U14's, they both rode well and came in 26 & 27th respectively...

Ned and Mostyn in the Under 14s

 Harry was next up in the 40+ race where he finished 77th and 36th in his age category of 45+.
