Snow was settled on the ground for the Broome Heath Scramble at Ditchingham, although not as much as in last year's event. Spectators, marshals and competitors were out in force and doing lots of work to keep warm in the freezing conditions.


Full results, plus the excellent lap-o-meter, available at easterncross.org.uk There is also an excellent write-up by Tim Bonnett (Iceni Velo's Santa #2): Iceni Velo at Broome Heath.

Veterans & Women

A hard-fought cyclocross race, which saw top Great Yarmouth CC rider Neil Turner shoved off his bike by Steve Woods (Cambridge CC). Neil had to retire and was gutted at having his ride ruined on such a big event for the region. The race was won by Andy Manning, with a healthy 44 seconds margin over 50+ vet Phil Buick.

Youth


The youths put in their usual gutsy performance; Sean Dunlea won the under 16's, and Mitchell Powell was fastest under 14. Best GYCC rider was Zak Coleman, despite two crashes and a stuck chain that held him up for a whole minute on lap 2. Matthew Baker nabbed the club's second place from Dan Swindells. Ben Turner, Patrick Manning and James Jordan also rode for GYCC, although James had to abandon.

Seniors / Elite Vets / Juniors


Andrew Nichols put in some superb lap times to finish with just enough time to celebrate as he crossed the line, after just over an hour's hard riding. Philip Roach, Tim Guy and Glenn Stanford finished in close succession. GYCC managed a team of four, with John Swindells finished 19th overall (11th in the seniors) despite being lapped, followed by Adam Houlgate, Clive Bond and Stuart Burdett.
