Twickenham CX round 9!
It was a dry but chilly day that greeted Sam, Will, Robbo Briggs, Simmo Hudson and Dunko to Hillingdon last Sunday.
It was a heavyish course, similar to our event the week previous, which the boys had to tackle with another bumper field in the main race.
In the hotly contested Youth race, Will pulled another top 10 with 8th in the under 16’s. He’s handling the bike more confidently every round and will be a handful in the senior category one day.
In the Main race Sam finished in 83rd, just behind Briggo in 82nd (by 3 mins and 60 odd years), with Simon Hudson in 53rd and Dunko down in 37th after a 3 way battle over the second half of the race.
Coming into the final round of the league Sam is 16th in the league rankings in Seniors, with Dunko in 9th, unfortunately Will doesn’t seem to feature in the league rankings in Youth and Ian, Simon, Neil, Laura and Mike and Nick aren’t going to squeeze in the 6 rounds to qualify for a league ranking this year. Next year we’ll gather more members of the Posse and dominate the league!
Standby for more info on Round 10 of the Central League which has been moved to Culham on January 6- very local and handy for us!
