Round 4, Tackeroo, Cannock Chase organised by the Lichfield. | Thanks to David Garrett

The course comprised a variety of wooded single track, fast fire road and some technical sections which were all rideable. Straight from the off Booth made the senior race his own followed by Pete Banham who was overtaken by Jonathan Harper late in the race with previous weeks winner Jeremy Hicks in 4th. Despite a puncture midrace, Darren Atkins took the vet 40+ category from team mate Phil Blacker.

With over 400 riders in attendance across the day there were some close fought battles in all age categories and genders. In the veterans/junior and women’s race Danny Fox (RST Racing) took his third victory in as many rounds building up a clear margin like in previous rounds.

The veterans 50+ section was a closer affair with Phil Roach just edging out former National Champion Steve Douce in second place with Mike Welburn (Lichfield City CC) coming home third. Sarah Lomas took the honours in the ladies race with Karen Summers first lady veteran.

There was an upset in the youth race as Ewan Grivell-Mellor (Mid Shropshire Whls) suffered his first defeat of the season to Josh Waters  while Lewis Askey – Lichfield CCC won the u14s.

Ridley & Lazer to co sponsor the “Waldrons West Midlands Cyclo-Cross League”
The League is also pleased to announce that both Ridley and Lazer will be supporting the ongoing development of cyclo-cross racing in the West Midlands. These leading brands will be visible at league events through the provision of: course marking tape, banners, and a demonstrator vehicle in attendance at key league events and provision of prizes for the top 3 riders overall in each recognised league category at the conclusion of an 11 event series.

This region is arguably the “premier league” in the country, regularly attracting over 400 riders in events. From under-10’s up to those in their senior years, this family oriented and friendly atmosphere provides a challenging and safe environment for all riders to hone their skills and keep fit over the winter months.

The West Midlands has always been a hot-bed of cyclocross talent going back over 50 years and has hosted the National Championships on more occasions than any other region in the country as well as providing many National Champions. As such, we are pleased to see market leading cycling brands supporting one of the most demanding and exciting cycling disciplines accessible to all.
