HSBC UK National Cyclo-Cross Trophy
Eileen Roe (Dooleys Cycles) just missed the top step at the HSBC UK National Trophy in York this weekend.York hosted a round of the series for the first time and the wet, muddy conditions made for difficult descents and technical off-camber climbs. The hardest section of the course saw Junior Harriet Harnden make her move and pull away from the leading group. Row was able to follow, resulting in a nail biting race with Roe demonstrating exceptional bike handling.
Fellow Scot Cameron Mason had a great race taking third in the Under23s. He handled the classic CX conditions brilliantly, proving his racing in Belgium is paying off.
