Wessex Cyclo-cross League – Round 9
Round nine of the Wessex Cyclocross League belonged to Steve James.
Having to start the race way back on the grid Steve moved quickly and efficiently to the front of the pack and in just two laps was ready to make his winning break. Going full gas, Steve powered through the worsening course conditions to take the win with an overall lead of 2 minutes and 27 seconds.
In the Veteran 40 race Crispin Doyle was also victorious. Despite suffering a mechanical failure in the closing stages of the race, Crispin quickly jumped onto his spare bike to take the win by a very slender 4 seconds.
