West Suffolk Cross (round 11)

Location: IP33 3BH, United Kingdom

This was quite an eventful day on many counts! Heavy overnight rain and daytime showers quickly turned the grassy course into a very slippery mud-bath, and with strong gusts of wind some bike gears became entwined with course tape. Worse was to come in the last race of the day though, when junior Kieran Jarvis (St Ives CC) suffered nasty fall in a race incident and required an ambulance and hospitalisation. That race was stopped, and results truncated to the end of the third lap. There is a full report on the BC website.

This video by Will Smith is a great summary of all the races, showing how the course deteriorated through the day:

Richard Muchmore was once again dominant and seemed to make light work of the tricky conditions. Here's a video, courtesy of Revel Outdoors, of him really enjoying himself:
