Misterton Summer Cross

Posted 10/09/2014 - Kevin Nicholls

Twenty Seven Whizz Kids signed on for Round 6 of the Alden's Electrical / Whizz Kids Racing League held at Misterton Hall, near Lutterworth.  For once I had the luxury of turning up to an event where the course had been set up so Massive thanks to George for setting the route for the session.  The younger Whizz Kids rode a shorter course which missed out the long grass in the field section which formed the back straight for the older riders.

After a guided tour by seasoned ‘Cross rider Dean to familiarise the riders Race 1 set off as a combined Under 6 and Under 8 on the short course.

In the Under 6's Jamie Kershaw was the winner followed by Flynn Smith and Thomas Shovelin.  In 4th, and showing some good speed on his new Islabike was Andrew Deathridge followed home by Holly Clark. In the Under 8's race Rudy Killworth romped home ahead of Hal Eastwood and Mia Hopkins and it was clear that the riders were capable of riding the long course later in the afternoon.  The Under 10's were led home by Edward Hopkins just ahead of George Timmins.  Third and fourth was contested by Kian Traynor and Dom Switzer and Dom picked up the third. In a small field the Under 12's it was a 1-2 for the girls as Freya Moore led Sophie Ward over the line with Ben Haines bringing home the boys ahead of Ben Brant.  Unfortunately today there were no under 14’s riding so that category remained empty.

After a suitable break the riders returned to the start for their second race and in the under 6's it was the same finishing order over the three laps of the short course.  In the Under 8's Rudy led Hal over the line but Beau Smith clearly enjoyed the longer distance and just pipped Mia for third.  There were two titanic battles in the Under 10's.  Batting throughout for the lead were George and Edward and at the end George came through.  There was a similar battle for third and this time Kian just edged out Dom. The final race of the afternoon it was as you were with Freya and Sophie leading from the start.  Sophie held the lead for the first 2½ laps but Freya was just waiting for the right opportunity to jump which she did on the third lap and held top spot to the chequered flag.  Benny and Ben had a personal battle and it looked at one stage that Ben Brant might just pick up third but Benny Haines must have saved something in the tank to retake third on the final half lap.

Many thanks today to our Golden trio of Young Volunteers of Sophie, Jack and Oliver for their superb assistance, to George for setting out the course, to Susie Hopkins for the results, to Dean who offered encouragement while riding as a travelling marshal (and who was credited as first in the Over 40 category) and to Alden's Electrical and George Halls Cycle Centre for their continued support of Whizz Kids.  Finally, as always thanks to the parents for your continued support.
