Central Cyclocross League - 20th November, Prologis Park, Kettering.

With 300 riders racing in near perfect conditions, sunshine above and a little bit of mud on the ground, Kettering Cycling Club hosted a great day of racing on Saturday at Prologis Park, Kettering, in a round of the Central Cyclocross League series.

Prologis have been an enormous support. The site team cut the grass and cleared weeds which allowed KCC's Mark Evans and his team to create a technically challenging course, with natural obstacles, hurdles and a challenging drop for the Senior racers.

For KCC this was an opportunity for their young team, The Cyclones, to demonstrate their skills. But with 3 coaches and 4 parents also entering races, many in the same race as the youngsters, it was a chance to demonstrate their competitiveness. None of the adults beat the Cyclones - this week. Watch this space though because there was much talk of training for future events.

Under 8 Boys

Jake Bird goes from strength to strength with a determined ride to secure first place (his third win of the series) to the delight of the local crowd. A Great showing from the youngest members of KCC's youth group The Cyclones meant the field was dominated by the boys in orange.

Under 10 Girls

The under 10 girls race was dominated by local talent, with another storming race from Elena-Rose Fereday taking her 8th win of the season, Kettering's Ruby Isaac's racing for Fenland Clarion came in 2nd and Tasmin Crabtree from KCC took fourth.

Under 12 Boys
The dominant Team MK once again took the first 5 places in the U 12 Boys with Dominic Bell from KCC winning a tough battle to finish 6th.

Under 12 Girls

Another podium finish for Amelia Cebak means she is currently sitting third overall in the league. Hannah Brown showed strength and determination in her first ever race to achieve 5th.

Under 14 Boys
Josh Brown was having the battle of the season against his biggest rival when a fall followed by a complicated mechanical lost him two and a half minutes. He showed courage and determination to battle from the back of the field through to finish fifth. The result has cost him the top of the league table in week 9 of 15, so the challenge is on to stay in the race for the league championship. With twenty of his team mates from KCC Cyclones watching his progress, Josh's ability to focus and fight on will be seen by them as the behaviour they should all aspire to.

Under 14 Girls
Another good race gave Bethany her second third place of the season, although she struggled to hold off the challenge from her father, who was competing for the first time in the novice race.
