Another great CX Season 2019

Richard Oakes and I attended the Forme Notts & Derby Cyclo-Cross League - NDCXL AGM yesterday. It was great to review the season and help shape the improvements for next season. We stood in for Richard Shenton who has been our representative at all the meetings for many years. 

At the end it was great for our Richard Oakes to receive his Ever Present award. He also picked up other BCC awards for riders and he will notify them. Richard raced in every league race and came high up in his age category.

Beeston CC's round of the NDCXL on 20th January 2018.  

Would be great if we could get as many volunteers as we normally do. Please put your name down on the link 

Season 2016/17 finishes in a flourish

It has been another great season for our members riding in the Season Finale CX at Chetwynd Barracks. 

There was support to watch the vet's category race with cow bells to make some serious noise, especially as it was Richard Oakes birthday.

The highlight of the season was the great event we hosted at Broxtowe Country Park with support from BRC, LEVC and RPD.

Another great cyclocross - Jan 2017 

Yesterday's 'cross went without a hitch all thanks to the volunteers, a lot of whom turned up at 7:30 and were still in the park at 4:00 - incredible commitment to the cycling cause. 

I received the following this morning: 

"Today we attended Broxtowe Park, along with our 5 year old granddaughter who was competing in the event, during which she had a accident.

I have to congratulate the organisers and all the marshals who gave their time for such a WELL ORGANISED event. Safety was paramount and obvious. The marshals were not only very professional in their duties but giving their encouragement to all the young riders 
Well done and thank you. 10 out of 10."

You were great - thank you.

The CX season has already started with the first round at Harwick Hall. The next round is today at Alfreton Park and BCC are out in force again.

If you are interested in cyclocross check out the Notts and Derby CycloCross league for all the fixtures.

It is easy entry for cyclists of most abilities and you get to ride in a safe environment whilst pushing your own capabilities. 

Another great Cyclocross event hosted by BCC

We will be producing a Cyclocross season image report capturing the great season of racing and the BCC CX event at Broxtowe Country Park on the 16th of January. Congratulations go to everyone who raced in the league and many thanks to everyone who helped Richard Shenton put on another great CX event at Broxtowe Country Park. 

More information will follow shortly. In the meantime you can see more images on our club facebook page.

Beeston Cycling Club were 8th in the league, thanks to the hard work of Mark Barron, Richard Reeve and Neil Buddo. Michael Barrie and John Pearson also endured 3 races, and Guy Dinsdale made a cameo appearance in 2. Mark Newing made a highly effective  appearance  with  avant-guarde headwear! They were all cheered and encouraged by their entourage, mostly consisting of the Barron and Newing family and recorded on instagram by David Cross.

October sees Beeston CC host the Cyclocross at Bramcote Park, beeston

On average with kids, junior and senior races there can be over 300 cyclists at this annual fixture on the Notts Derby Cyclocross League,

Richard Shenton project leads the event with the help of club members and their families, making it a great day out for all.

We usually have six or so senior riders entering and a few younger ones too. This event has everything from the super competitive races to cheering on your young one. 

Julian Gould, the NDCXL chair comment on last year's event: “I thought it was a great event and the club need congratulating on what you did... I could see that you had given a lot of thought to the whole event from signing on to course marking, marshals, etc. I also thought from what I saw you had more helpers than at any event this year (as they were clearly visible in the flo bibs). So please pass on a big vote of thanks from me to all at Beeston, well done!

Look out for details of the next event when the fixture has been finalised.
