Where serious cycle apparel meets London's East End with a bang. The hardier members of the Hackney GT Cyclocross Team made the long trip to Hempden in North Norfolk, where East Coast Riders put on challenging technical course. To further test the metal of the riders, a hailstorm followed by torrential rain greeted the vets race. Fortunately a great spread of tea and cake was on hand to aid recovery after a hard race. In the slippery conditions Matt Webber took 2nd to Steven James after a race long battle, giving him sufficient points to lead the League standings, with Mike Kangelos 7th and Federico Bernasconi taking 11th. In the Vet40 Kevin Carter took 8th. Next weekend has a great choice of Cyclo-Cross fixtures. The Eastern League has another double header weekend with Redgrave on Saturday and Ipswich on Sunday. The London League event is near Lewes, East Sussex and the Central League is in Harlington, Beds.
