Result: Central CX League Misterton

On a day the Great Britain made cyclo-cross history by taking a clean sweep of the medals in the World Junior Cyclo-cross Championships in Luxemburg, the heart of the sport was being enjoyed by many across the age groups at Misterton Hall, nr Lutterworth.

The Welland Valley CC promotion, Barney’s Bash – Misterton Madness, was the final round of the popular Central League. After many decades of promoting cross this was the first time the Market Harborough based club had promoted on behalf of this league.

The majestic estate of Misterton Hall is ideal for cross racing with its multitude of terrain testing the strength, speed and agility of all the competitors. Overnight rain added an extra gloss to an excellent days racing in all the categories.

Following last weekend’s devastating news, riders observed a minutes silence before each of the main races in memory of Charlie Craig which was a fitting tribute, #rideforcharlie

The events for the younger riders kicked off the action on a specially designed course that ensured any climbing was completed within the woods or on hard paths. As the ‘champions of the future’ whizzed round the course on wheels the size of dinner plates there was healthy support for all. The racing was tight with many podium places being separated by seconds. All of the young competitors received a souvenir beanie hat for beating the course regardless of their finishing position.

The speed of the racing increased as the Youth and Novice racers headed out onto the full course which featured a natural log jump and fast descents through the woodland. The skills on display by the youths were very impressive, doubly impressive was the number Novices enjoying the beautiful sport of cross. At the end of the race they all had a story to tell as the conquered the Misterton Madness.

As the sun shone and the atmosphere in the woodlands intensified it was the turn of the Juniors and Veterans 40 plus, as this race finished it was the turn of the Over 50’s, which featured two World Masters Champion – Dave McMullen and Vic Barnett, and Women to sample the delights of Barneys Bash.  In all four classifications there was some very close fought racing as the riders jostled for a high finishing position and final league points.

The senior riders lined up for the final race, a 60 minutes blast round the 2.6km course. No sooner had the race started, a short shower made the course greasy on the corners and sent the riders in search of fresh racing lines to maintain traction and momentum. As the riders crossed the finish line the officials were not sure if the facial expressions were ones of pain or pleasure.

Organiser Dean Barnett would like to thank Mrs Craven for allowing use to use her ‘back garden’ , Central Cyclo-cross league for welcoming WVCC into the league, officials, first aid, electronic timing, members and friends who made the day flow seamlessly from car parking, signing on, refreshments, judging and marshalling. The course construction takes many hours planning and setting out, no sooner had the racing finished an excellent team of volunteers had the course gathered up in 40 minutes – excellent team work.

See you all next season, Dean Barnett #lovecross #cyclingonebigfamily
