Report: Newbury New Years Cross

from Chris Bolton

What is hoped will be the first of many New Year’s Day Cyclo-Cross events in Newbury proved to be fun for all participants and entertaining for spectators. The course was demanding given the nature of Goldwell Park with the big slope to climb and the conditions, but fortunately it remained dry throughout. Although each category was very competitive it wasn’t all about hard racing with a few fun elements. There was a “Wall of Foam” to negotiate and for the adults only, a pit stop for a “Hair of the Dog” shot! Many riders wore fancy dress with a few tutus on show and even Batman and a rider in a gorilla outfit.

Whilst attracting some top cyclo cross and mountain bike riders we also attracted others and some were new to the sport. The event was supported by West Berkshire Council and Get Berkshire Active with funding from the Sportivate “This Girl Can” initiative.
