Halesowen promoted round 5 of the Waldrons West Midlands Cyclo Cross League on sunday at Baggeridge Country Park. The main event of the day saw Peter Banham (Fred Williams Cycles) take his first win of the series on a challenging course which looped around Baggeridge Country Park taking in areas of grassland, testing climbs, technical wooded sections and off camber descents.

Banham quickly established his position at the front of the race with Chris Metcalf making his first visit to a West Mids event in close attendance. Chasing just 15secs behind was Jeremy Hicks (Rugby Velo) who got very close only to ship his chain in the wooded section and drift back to a group led by Tom Payton.

However not to be deterred Hicks set off again and over the final laps chased down a tiring Metcalf who was now 10 secs adrift of Banham. Whilst Banham crossed the line for the win it was Hicks providing the appreciative crowd with excitement as he bore down on Metcalf finally making contact at the last bend with only 75 yards to go. In a frantic sprint for the line Metcalf found the energy to hold off Hicks to complete the podium placings.

With the 40+ veterans starting 1 minute behind the seniors it was Darren Atkins (Team Jewson) who took top honours in a trouble free ride some distance in front of team mate Phil Blacker who hit the deck on a couple of occasions on what proved a tricky course as the ground cut up in the latter stages.

In the veterans (50+), juniors and women’s race, the veterans and juniors started together and Preslav Dimitrov (Solihull CC) was the overall winner and junior winner.

Coming home second overall and first veteran was Michael Davies (Team Pedal Power) with the first women prize going to Hannah Payton (Team CTC).  Joshua Waters (Sherwood Pines Cycles) took his second win of the league in as many weeks in the youth race leading from the front and building up a gap of nearly a minute to win in convincing style.

In the under-14 category Toby Barnes (Lichfield City CC) was victorious, first under-16 girl was Amy Garner (Welland Valley CC) and first under-14 girl was Gabriella Homer (Wolverhampton Whls). In the under-12 race Simon Wyllie was first boy and Josie Nelson (Solihull CC) was first girl home.

Ben Askey (Lichfield City CC) was first boy home in the under-10’s event and first girl home was his team mate was Daisy Rollason. Event support was provided by league co sponsors Ridley and Lazer to ensure the day had a classic “Belgium” feel about it.
