Kinesis London Summer Cross 2016
A four race series held during July and August. Round two sadly had to be cancelled but the other events were well attended and promoted by 5th Floor Cycles supported by some great cycling clubs.

London Summer Cross Seniors 3 2016
The 3rd round of the Kinesis London Summer Cross held at Morden, south London on August 4 2016.
There was a three way fight for top senior honours followed by a group of riders vying for fourth spot. The women’s category and veteran men saw dominant wins.
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.
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!

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.
