There was a large turn-out in Springfield Hall Park (Chelmsford) for all of the races in round 2 of the Eastern Cyclo-cross League. A twisting, technical course and three sections of steps tested bike handling skills to the limit, and even the under-12 racers had tight turns and hard climbing to contend with. Conditions were extremely good: dry and mild, with a light breeze, and firm dry ground with no recent rain.


Under 12's race

A wide range of rider abilities on a tricky cyclocross course made it hard work for tail-enders and front-runners alike. GYCC rider Tristan was going well, but had to retire after taking a corner too tight and getting trapped on one of the springy fence-posts.


Youth / under 14's race

The full-length course (with steps, tight turns and technical climbs) made some of the youths struggle, but the fastest riders put in some impressive lap times.


Featured riders, in photos below: Daniel Swindells and Matthew Baker (GYCC); Zak Coleman and Sophie Holmes (Inverse Racing).

Senior/Junior/Elite Veteran race

Thirty riders managed to avoid being lapped, a sign of a strong field. However, the full field of riders did cause some problems for the leaders, as they came across a lot of slower riders on many sections of the course.
