l Cold and bright conditions greeted riders from KLCC competing in the Regional Cyclocross Championships held in Kent on Sunday, writes Ray Barnett.
The tough course included fast grass sections, even faster uphill road sections, tricky off camber corners, hurdles and steps, a huge run uphill, and a sand pit.
Racing against the best riders from across the Eastern and South East regions, KLCC were represented by Florence Barnett racing in U12, Bethany Barnett in U14, and Ray Barnett in Veteran 40.
Impeded by a commissaire on the start line, Florence had an unlucky start, further compounded by being held up just behind a crash into the first corner. She fought back to finish a comfortable second place. Bethany similarly had an unfortunate start, having to navigate around a stopped rider, but battled with her key rival from the Eastern League. A dramatic sprint finish concluded in Bethany clinching second place.
Ray had a fantastic start, but his fitness levels couldn’t keep up and slipped back to finish 34th.
