Round 6, Miche Wessex CX League, Andover

Redenham Park, near Andover was the venue for round 6, hosted by Andover Wheelers who laid on a great spread and plenty of refreshment options for hungry riders and support crews.

The course on the country park estate, a mix of grass meadow and twisting, woodland single track with a short tarmac section and a couple of imposing bomb holes. Heavy mid-week rain failed to dampen the course save for a few squirrelly wood sections and the race pace was fast again. The bomb holes certainly played their part though in detonating the race action, claiming a few victims to the steep crater walls!

Max Darnton (Nova RT) took his first win in the Junior men.

The v40 men was won by Dan Guest (Cotswold Veldrijden) after an early puncture for favourite, Paul Lloyd meant a long run to the pits.

Adeline Moreau (Sunday Echappée), was victorious in the women’s senior race, Maryka Sennema (Cotswold Veldrijden) taking the v40 women, Caroline Goodman (High Wycombe CC) top V50 woman.

In the v50 men, Jon Hall (Sotonia CC) took an early flyer but was pegged back by eventual winner, Phil Boarer (GS Vecchi).

In the final race of the day – the senior men came down to a photo finish with David Bone (RC Ravenna) being narrowly beaten by Jonathan Dennis (Kibosh) on his single speed.
