The weather is more akin to cross at the moment and whilst your thoughts may be turning to 3 certain hills in September another event to get in your diaries is the 15th of December.
This year we have a new venue and it promises to be stunning, we have changing rooms for men and ladies, water supplied for you lucky people with pit crews to wash your bikes mid race and a hose pipe laid on for post race washing of kit. There will be refreshments being served all day and some cool activities for the kids - grass sledging!!!
Hope are on board as sponsors as well as Go Velo who are sponsoring the U12's again. Plus I am working on more sponsors to get on board.
New this year will be a ladies only race - this will not count for league points unfortunately but will be a great way to try cross. Cheryl King as generously sponsored this event so we will have some fantastic prizes to race for. So come on ladies you know you want to have a go.
Alan (aka crossjunkie) and I are planning a course that will challenge, entertain and test your cx skills, this is going to be one of the must attend events of the season.
Oh in the NW we are trying hard to improve events and get results out quicker, we need volunteers to lend a hand, this could be marshaling one event, helping out the lovely ladies with lap keeping, or typing the results onto the computer. Please try and help out at one event it would be so helpful to the organisers and help improve OUR events!!!! if you want to lend a hand then please email me at email@example.com and I will pass your details on.
