CCH out racing last weekend.

Andy sporting some pretty natty yellow gloves at Welwyn.
Saturday 6th of October and it was Welwyn Wheelers turn to host a round of the Eastern Cross League. The early race had Andy and Harry in the Vet 50+ category with Andy getting in the top ten at 8th place. In the U12s we had Stanley Boyd, Harry Gregory and first timer Monty stocker giving it a go.
It doesn't look like much but the mud-patch Louis just negotiated was damn sticky.
 Moving up a category into the U14s youth race we Louis Byrne, Frank Moore and Logan de Monchaux-Irons. The boys all rode well on the fast course with Logan coming a creditable 13th overall and 2nd in his first outing in his U14 age group.
Logan on his way to 2nd in the U14s - note how much a chain flaps around when you ride cross.
 This was followed in the afternoon by the Senior Elite Vet race which was where myself and Gary hightailed it to after Saturday morning training - lets just say we never had time to warm up... Full results here.
Neil and Gary at the start of the Elite Vet race- Whose idea was this?
Sunday and Harry and Frank were at it again this time in the London league at Herne Hill where they had a massive field in the seniors/vets race of around 150 riders....

Meanwhile on another track ... this time the Manchester Velodrome - Keir was taking part in the 2012 UCI World Masters Track Cycling Championships. Riding in the 50-55 500m TT Keir came 23rd with a time of 38.580 seconds  averaging 46.656 km/h. Keir will be racing in other events later this week so let's wish him the best.

I also understand there may have been some CCH members racing in the Human Powered Championships at Hoghill on Sunday if so let us know how you got on.
