What a wonderful day.

Congratulations to the amazing team who put on this superb event at such short notice, to the army of little champs who competed in the U12 race with such professionalism and gusto, to the Youths whose speed was wonderfully alarming, to the women whose numbers were a fantastic indicator of the growth in cyclocross racing for the ‘fairer sex’ and then for ripping each other’s legs off just as hard as the men, to all the veterans who are still smashing it, to the men for rounding off the day with a spectacular race, to all the worthy winners and to everyone who entered and everyone who supported.

I had hoped to include more text in this report, but I’m afraid the day is running out, and so is my fuse! However, I could not let Imogen down. Her eyes lit up when I interviewed her after her race, and she was a delight to chat to. And check out that victory salute – she looks just like Nikki Harris…
