Central England and Eastern England Combined Regional Cyclo-Cross Championships

Abbey Regional Champion

On Sunday Welwyn Garden City hosted the combined Central and Eastern Regional Cyclo-Cross Championships. The course was slippery after the previous night’s rain. As the Under10s and Under8s lined-up with deep concentration on their faces; the commissaire blew his whistle to start therace. The field burst into life with everyone checking who was around them. Abbey Thompson of ‘Suffolk Youth Race Team’ led the Under10 girls into the first corner with the top three boys just ahead of her. Abbey raced against Isabel Beale from Lea Valley and Katie Allsop from Hillingdon with mixed success this year; this time she rode away from both. The boys accelerated out of the corners quicker with Abbey reeling them back in along the straights. An elated Abbey took 1st place in the combined Central and Eastern U10 girl competition and is also Eastern Regional Champion. Callum Thompson started really well from the back of the grid, due to being only 5 years of age racing against 8-year olds. Callum stormed around beating a number of older riders. Callum finished 3rd in Under8 boys in the Eastern Region.
