Frosty conditions at the 9th round of the Lazer/Ridley sponsored West Midlands Cyclo Cross League promoted by Birmingham Midland CC at the Blackwell Court course near Bromsgrove did not deter some of the youngest members of Wyre Forest CRC. In the under 14 girls age category Posie Forrester continued her quest for a final podium finish with 3rd place while Grace Nolan went one better with a 2nd place finish. While Posie’s consistent finishes have helped her into the current top spot in her age group Grace has not competed in all the races so has not scored consistently which has resulted in her mid table position. Another rider who has not taken part in a full season of races, but whose consistent top 10 finishes have kept him in a mid table position is Daniel Philpotts. At the latest round he produced his best finish to date with a fine 5th place in the under 8 boys race.
Next weekend riders will be contesting the regional championships at Holt Heath near Worcester with the final round in the WMCCL taking place a week later at Polesworth near Tamworth.
