Sunday 9th December – Bah Humbug 10k

Sunday 9th December – Bah Humbug 10k

Report from Howard: This is a very tough, hilly almost cross country 10k. Despite the not very Christmassy sounding name the elves, Santas and reindeer were out in force. Clear blue sky and pleasantly mild, windless conditions prevailed so we were lucky. Chatted with Andy and Sara before the start which was from the South Leeds Stadium track. The microphone and speakers translated the starting official’s announcements into Klingon! He would have been better asking for quiet, then speaking up….

Saturday 8th December – West Yorkshire XC League – Keighley

Saturday 8th December – West Yorkshire XC League – Keighley

After 3 dry league races, a period of sustained rain produced more traditional cross country conditions at Cliffe Castle, Keighley.  There was lots of entertainment for the spectators on the section contouring across the steep slippy slope at the top of the hill, I’m sure there’ll be plenty of photographic evidence about in the next week.  Some great results in the juniors & senior ladies, the old men have seen better days, but did their best and enjoyed the mud……

Saturday 24th November – Weeton Handicap

Saturday 24th November – Weeton Handicap

A small but elite bunch gathered under the railway bridge for the penultimate race of this years Eric Smith trophy.  Maddie ran strongly up the final incline to take her first handicap win with a time nearly 4 and a half minutes quicker than 2 year ag0.  Liam, (plus William in the buggy), over took Tom just before the finish, but as I’d messed up Tom’s start time by at least 5 seconds, Tom took the 14 points for 2nd. …
