'How the Race was Won" CCH 1,2 at Hog Hill on Tuesday Night

CCH riders Jess Feeney-Davies & Connie Hayes were in action on Tuesday night at LVYCC midweek race,  getting first and second in their U16 race - congratulations. Here's the story in Jess' own words

We turned up, me and Connie, surrounded by the blues greens and blacks of Lea Valley and the odd Welwyn and Barking and Dagenham. We were definitely outnumbered but even more determined! As we lined up on the start line and they told us it was an HOUR RACE! Thats almost 16 climbs of the hill! No thanks I thought! We started, stayed together as a group of 5 U16 girls, looked like it was going to have to be all of us cross the line at the same time , we were so evenly matched! Then one time up the hill me & Connie pushed ourselves and lost them, it was going to be just us now to face the wind and the finish! 2 laps to go and it was neck and neck then last lap we decided to race it out, the hill spilt us but we got 1st and 2nd on Lea Valleys very own circuit!
