Pat yourselves on the back Sotonia for hosting a brilliant Cyclocross event on Sunday week! Around 500 people went home with big smiles on their faces, including an outstanding showing of 31 club racers among the 343 competitors.
We couldn’t have done it without the support of club members giving up so much of their time to help marshal, set-up, take down, serve cakes, DJ, cheer and generally help out. We even had BBC South film the action for broadcast sometime soon!
There were 13 of our youth riders in the U10 race alone, with George Connell finishing a whisker away from the podium in 4th and Max Darnton 12th in the U12s, battling back after an early crash.
In the v40 race: Jon Hall (17th), Phil Connell (26th), Simon Guard (32nd). v50s: Jon Dudley (16th), Simon Fitzjohn (31st). The womens race featured two of our ladies: Gemma Wilks (13th) and Emma Harley in her first cross race (30th).
For the senior race, Tom Budden was again up with the leaders, eventually finishing 9th, Phil Wilks (21st), Tobie Charlton (22nd), Matt Dixon (28th), Phil Godfrey (29th), Ant Gritton (36th), Ben Scott-Munden (42nd), Ben Darnton (46th), Niels Langhout (51st).
Well done everyone!
