Thank you to the Wigmore CC and the volunteers for their organisation.

Elsewhere, Rob Kennison took part in the London Cross League event held at Crystal Palace park. Despite having had a long period off the bike due to work and holiday commitments, Rob was able to complete the event as he starts his work towards the World Masters Cross Championships in December.

Well done to all those repping the velo colours.
