Hoghton Tower Cyclocross Race report

Despite the rain - and there was a lot of rain - there was a great turnout and high spirits at the first race of the 2018 NWCCA season. The Red Rose team put on a great event with a challenging course in a fabulous setting.

Thanks to all the volunteers that helped out setting up the day before, marshalling on the day and tidying up afterwards.

Results are available from the NWCCA.

Saturday Cyclocross Coaching

Event Type
Coaching Session
Date and Time
Until
10:30am
Location

Moor Park, Preston

After the summer of road cycling skill sessions on the track we are moving off-road to cyclocross skills. The sessions are open to riders of all ages and we'll have a couple of groups so we can have advanced riders honing their skills and novice riders learning some important basic skills. We'll be looking at what skills will be needed for the next race - the Manchester Wheelers' Cyclocross - which has some steps to run up and a tricky off-camber section.

We're hoping to have sessions on any Saturday when there is no race during the season.

Everton Park Summer Cross Report

Red Rose Olympic had a great day of racing at Everton Park. It was quite a different experience racing in the sun and heat after the rain, hail and snow of the last cyclo-cross winter season.

Red Rose had riders in every race. Pheobe won the U10 girls race and Dan was in the youth race and had a great race despite a mechanical on the start line which delayed him getting away.

There was a great atmosphere, with local police on bikes having a go round the course and representatives of the Friends of Everton Park there too.
