Cyclo-Cross Newtown Race Report.

Round 7 Cyclo Cross Newtown 2013.

On Sunday 17th of November Cyclo Cross Newtown 2013, after a long journey, two hardy Sosban Riders were ready to race.

It was dry crisp day, perfect for Cyclo Cross. The course was dry but muddy in parts, it was quite flat with one small slope and a technical part in the forest. The weather was great with no rain and the area was very scenic.

First off was Harry N in the under 8's within a field of 21 riders. Harry set off from front row, with a good start along the straight and then through the turns to the forest. Cheered on by his little brother, Harry smiled all the way around and put in and excellent race.


Next up for Sosban Riders was Lucy O in the under 12's race again within a field of 21 riders. The course was extended and 2 hurdles were added. Lucy rode the course well without a tumble (for a change!) Great result for Lucy with a podium finish of 3rd place.

Big thanks goes out to Hafren CC for putting on and excellent event and thanks to Newtown AFC for providing the refreshments !

Well done to Harry and Lucy for making the long journey and on your excellent races.
