Cyclocross League Round 9 at Parc Bryn Bach
On Sunday 20th November, over 230 cyclists (including 83 under 12’s) braved the snowy conditions at Parc Bryn Bach to compete in Round 9 of the Welsh Cyclocross League.
Cyclo-cross is off-road cycle racing on grass and tracks on a circuit of up to one mile in length. It’s usually held in public parks or on sports fields and is technically and physically less demanding than mountain biking.
The event was a great success with lots of positive feedback received from competitors and spectators alike.
The winners for each category were: -
Finlay Storrie (Maindy Flyers)
Efanna Lewis (Ystwyth CC)
Cian Evans (The Bulls)
Evelyn Nurse (Cardiff JIF)
Kieron Heuberger (Gower Riders)
Evelyn Higgins-Worrall (Abergavenny RC)
