Last weekend's racing roundup.

Frank shows how to keep control on the first corner.

Three hardy CCH riders made it down to snowy and cold Herne Hill on Sunday 5th of February for the last round of the London Cyclo Cross League. First up was Frank in the U12’s with a good start he managed to avoid the pile up at the first corner and settled into a consistent top three place for a majority of the treacherous two laps,  only for a crash and the resulting lose of his chain to slip down to fourth – still a great result.

Mostyn finishing without a chain.

Mostyn was next up in the Youth race where again a mechanical  caused a few problems but he stuck at it and was forced to shoulder his bike for the last 500m!

Harry leading round some Vets after the Youth had kindly cleared the snow.
 For the last race of the day conditions had improved slightly with mud and slash being more of a problem that a layer of snow…. Harry managed to get round (with only a couple of tumbles!) and had a grand battle with a few other Vets. A great end to an enjoyable Cross Season roll on the next! Full results and report here.

Jessie off to a flyer in her first U14 race.

Meanwhile on Saturday 4th, Me, Isaac, Jude, Justin and Bede went to Hillingdon to take part in a race, it was a freezing morning and there were over 60 riders in total and CCH did well. It was my first under 14 race, my first race of the season and really the first time I had been on a bike since November/October. I came 3rd U14 girl (even though there were only 3 or 4) and Isaac came 8th U12 boy and Bede came 9th U12 boy. Justin came 18th and Jude did very well. Also Louis and Theo from EastlondonVelo rode a brilliant race, Theo coming 6th u12 boy and Louis coming 3rd u16 boy (even though it was his first u16 race!) Everybody did very well despite the weather and we enjoyed it. Full report and more pictures here. Words Jessie - pic - Sean.

Over at Hoghill James, Ben and Tom were racing in the cat3/4 4th round of ELV's six days of winter series. Report here.
