Location: Bradwell, Newcastle-under-Lyme
Event: 27 December 2012
Report: Norman Bassett
To finish the Lyme RC Go-Ride year, two courses were set up for the Go-Race at Newcastle-under-Lyme.
The A course for the under 8s, under 10s and under 12s was a shorter semi-technical course with a few obstacles whilst the B course was a full technical 1km lap with steps and a few more obstacles. Both the A and B courses had the slippery slopes and the mud which makes for a proper cyclo-cross race.
Most of the under 8s and under 10s found the mud climbs tough all getting off and pushing, but at the end all had a smile and a feeling of accomplishment. The under 12s race was a full on race with Jake Meir pulling in to an early lead and keeping it to the end with Jake Popham coming in a distant second. Both the next two races on the B course had a long set of steps in them plus a large tree trunk which before it had a steep muddy downhill which caught a few out. The long muddy climb approaching the finish was at the end very slippery and not many could ride it.
This year Lyme RC has held three Go-Race events to go with their full Go-Ride program, for 2012 Lyme RC will be running six Go-Race events including a cyclo-cross event next Christmas.
