The Hoghton Tower cyclocross race hosted by Red Rose Olympic CC was the first race of the season, so it was time for our riders to put into practice the skills they'd been working on in the pre-season coaching sessions.
The course devised by Jack, was challenging with plenty of climbing, off-cambers, fast descents and of course the steps when leaving the barn!
Red Rose were well represented with riders in the U8, U12, youth, vet and women races - gaining 2nd place in the U8 race and 3rd place in the U12 race. Many of our younger riders were taking part in their first ever race and they all really enjoyed the day.
A big thank you to all the volunteers that contributed to the smooth running of the event.
The results and more photos are available on the NWCCA results page.
