30 October 2011: Mistley Cyclo-cross

This was round 8 of the Eastern Cyclo-cross League. Conditions were unseasonably warm and sunny, with hardly any wind either. The ground was dry, but there were plenty of fallen leaves in the wooded area which made cornering quite tricky.

John rode his first cyclocross for the first (and last!) time in years, finishing 16th out of 30 seniors. Dan rode his first event as part of the League, and came in 12th in the under-14's. Club-mates Zak and Matthew were 9th and 11th respectively. Rowan was 6th in the under-10's race.
