It’s a busy weekend! It’s actually the club cyclocross championships on the Saturday. The club champs are run on the last round of the NECCL league at Hetton. This clashes with the Christmas Lunch.
The race on the Sunday is a round of the CXNE league. Historically we’ve held the CXNE race earlier in the season, due mostly to parking limitations at the farm, but the growth in cross has been massive leading to a packed calendar.

The course for Sundays CXNE race is pretty much set out and it looks epic! Many thanks to Mark for collecting the thousand poles (really) and other kit. Many many thanks to Bob, Peter, Jeff and Liam for taping the course out today. 2km long and marked on both sides in its entirety, no small task. We got finished just as the rain started to ease.
Good luck to all racing at Hetton tomorrow in the club cx championships and I hope the Christmas Lunch goes well too. Its a busy weekend.

A massive thanks to everyone who made today’s CXNE event happen. It was actually a lower turnout that usual for CXNE, probably due to weather and proximity to Christmas but with well over 200 competitors throughout the day you still couldn’t call it a small event.
There was lots of positive feedback from both competitors and officials.

And well done to you Graham Tubby for taking on the organiser role. It was like you've always done it. I'm sure all your efforts are appreciated throughout the club and further afield and your powers of delegation will live in the memories of those who saw them, for many a day !
