It's not every day you get to watch the best riders in the country on your doorstep and on the weekend of 8/9 January the National Cyclo-Cross Championships will be held at Moorways Centre in Derby so here's your chance !
This should be a great weekend's racing to watch on what should be a good fast course (weather permitting). There's also events for the little uns over the weekend run by Cycle Derby so bring them along and get them involved.

well what a cracking race :D Our Gav came inside the top 30, there was a great scrap for 2&3 between Liam Killeen and another rider (sorry forgot his name :oops: ) and Nick Craig having taken part (and won?) the veteran's race yesterday came 5th in the elite race today :shock: :shock:

Thanks for the support guys, it's always nice to hear friendly shouts when it's hurting a lot !
I was 28th in the end and was after a top 30 so it's :D

Jody Crawforth, he won the title himself in 2009 beating today's winner Paul Oldham into 2nd.

Yeah, Nicky pretty much rode the race yesterday at 75% once he'd got the gap and coasted to the win and then does that today - puts most of the seniors to shame really !

Well done Gav. I was cheering, but too far away for you to hear.
