Youth

The youth race saw Max Lawson and Fred Gill fighting for first, with the latter taking the honours. The battle for 3rd, yes I know I keep saying 2nd, was brilliant with Toby grabbing the spot on the line.


 

London Summer Cross Seniors 4 2016
The 4th round of the Kinesis London Summer Cross held at Herne Hill Velodrome, south London on August 11 2016.

Seniors
Sorry, I missed the start of the seniors as I had to fix some tape and the opening segments seem to be tape related in some way or another. Don’t break the tape!

A great evening of racing and which saw an amazing turnout of riders. Thanks to mostly sensible riding the issue of numbers of rider’s v the small area of HH did not cause too many problems. Thanks to all for riding cooperatively.

Looking at the videos you wouldn’t think it was a site in London, it looks so nice!

Youth
A great race for top honours that saw a lead group go clear but this was trimmed down when both Max Lawson and Fred Gill saw trouble. In the end Noah Charlton took the win whilst a fine fight for 4th went to Emily Ashwood.
