The Sussex League

The Sussex League has been around for over 30 years and traditionally the Senior mens winner was presented with the Sussex League trophy at the end of the season. In the early years it was far simpler to manage due to the relatively small number of riders racing. As the league has expanded and Cyclo Cross has become more popular it became more difficult for Sussex league coordinator, Andy Seltzer to manage manually as as sub category of the main London and South East Cyclo Cross League. He managed this basically by knowing the riders (or clubs) and completed a manual spreadsheet, but there are just too many riders now to make it a viable option. We thank Andy for all his hard work over the years and in helping us set up the new system.

The Sussex League trophy is the oldest trophy we have in our Region. The Sussex league for many years had presented to the Senior mens winner the 14 inch Silver plated Sussex League Cup. This cup had seen better days and was in a very poor state and had found its way to the deepest darkest corner of the shed. This cup has history dating back to the early 1990’s and as part of this revamp of the League the LCCA committee felt it important to preserve this trophy and commissioned repairs. The trophy looks fantastic and will look great in anyone’s trophy cabinet. We will  present this Trophy to one of the overall winners from all the categories above. A team will be selected to set criteria and select the champion of champions.
