Start of the Cyclocross Season
Wight Mountain Cyclo Cross
The Wight Mountain/Red Funnel team introduced a new member into the world of Cyclocross at Oxford on Sunday.
Jorge Millan, had a great first ride of his Cyclocross career to achieve 17th place in the Senior race, beating some very strong and experienced opposition and all carried out on a mountain bike rather than a Cyclocross specific machine.
Alec Broome had a happier race this week after coming off in his first race last week at Newbury.
The ride saw him finish in the middle of the field, providing a strong result considering it is his first season of competitive racing.
The Vets race provided a great result for Steve Dines, achieving 3rd place in the Vet 55 age group, Martyn Dymond, had a second disappointment to his season and another mechanical meant that he did not finish the race.
Anybody who would like to try, or find out more about the friendly world of Cyclocross,
