Go Cross

A Go Ride Cyclo X at Gallagher Park, Bedlington. 

Event Info


Barnesbury CC held it’s first of four Go Ride Cyclo-Cross Races at Gallagher Park, Bedlington on Saturday 11th September. Targeting beginner riders aged under 16 years old the aim of the mini league is to encourage non cyclists to have a go at competitive off road racing. With no experience necessary and only needing a bike, helmet and parental consent 10 riders lined up for the start which incorporated a timed lap and a mass start race.
Under 16 year old Daniel Mould (Newcastle Phoenix) was the only rider to break the minute barrier for the timed lap. However during the mass start race where the younger riders completed only part of the course under 10 Joe Hodgson (Barnesbury CC) had the edge until Daniel managed to overhaul him on the penultimate lap to take maximum points in the age categorised league. However, perhaps the gutsiest ride of the day was from the youngest competitor - Pete Watson (unattached) who although took longest in the timed lap finished in sixth position in the mass start race due to the handicapped system.

A Great afternoon was had by all ten entrants. The race took the form of a short timetrial round a lap of the course, then an elimination cyclo X race for all competitors, the under tywelves using a shorter course than the under sixteens, which seemed to work well.
