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.
