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.
