Just before Christmas, 22 of our youths headed up the A34 as Take 3 Tri successfully managed to host round 3 of the Wessex Cyclocross league at Abingdon airfield. We were welcomed with no wind and clear skies making it unusually warm for Dalton and treated to a new course at an old favourite venue, full of tricky offcambers.

Yet again some notable podiums with Billy 2nd U8 boy, Eve and Tilly 2nd & 3rd U10 girls (a battle to watch this year). In the U12 race, an excellent performance by Sophie with a 2nd place and the boys had a right battle with Stanley 2nd and the two Toms battling it out for 3rd and 4th spot with Tom Wilks winning this week.

Moving onto the bigger course with the U14s, a good performance by Izzy and Emma with 2nd and 4th respectively. The boys had a right old ding-dong with Miles coming out on top in 6th. The U16s set off a minute in front of the U14s with an excellent ride by Lucy to finish 2nd U16 girl, with Max finishing 3rd U16 boy.

Well done to all our riders, let’s hope for some more racing in 2021.
