|Action from Saturday's cat 4 race|
|Youth D race|
The smaller fields for the D and E categories this year may reflect the new rule changes for Under 12s or maybe the sun pulled them in another direction - those that did race gave it their all with wins for Mia Rutherford in the girls D for Iceni Velo, Henry Hobbs of Barking and Dagenham CC won the boys D and James Warrilow also Barking and Dagenham CC winning the boys E.

|1st and 2nd in the youth C boys|
The cat C under 12s race was next - taking place over 6 laps with girls giving it as good as the boys - once again Barking & Dagenham showed strongly with Leah Warrilow winning followed by Anoushka Minale of Cycling Club Hackney, Flo Peate from Bigfoot and Sienna Bhumbra also CCH.
For the C Boys Noah Hobbs of Barking & Dagenham took the win followed by team mate Caelan Miller, then Alfie Salmon of Lee Valley Youth. Full results here.
|Youth B bunch|
|Winner youth A|
This week the A and B races were run at the same time under strict orders not to come together. At one point the leading under 14 rider- Aran Martin broke off the front of his bunch and caught then passed the under 16s before they decided to put power down and force the race. In the end he took a well deserved win over the 45 minute race. A close sprint for the A boys went the way of Liam Hanks and Charlotte Mcgreevy won the B girls and Connie Hayes won the A's.

|Austin up front in the Cat 4 race.|
The 4th cat race was popular as usual with nearly seventy riders on the start line. The racing looked pretty fast in the heat and all was going well until the final lap when a pedal strike at the front of the bunch resulted in a pile up at the top of the hill next to the velodrome - just as everyone was cranking up their sprint efforts. Around ten riders came down with one rider looking at a broken collar bone - we wish a speedy recovery to them all. Those who missed the crash went on to the sprint with Rory McCarron from regents Park Rulers taking the win. Top ten -

Circuit racing is fast, exciting and can be dangerous but over the three Primavera events the racing was in the main of a safe and good standard and we'd like to thank all the riders who took part and for all your fantastic feed back and we hope to see you again at our next one there on the 10th of September. Thanks also to all the CCH volunteers and helpers without whom the events could not take place.
