Photos from the youth event at round 13 of the CXNE cyclocross series.
Rain falling heavier again made conditions start to deteriorate middway through this event yet many riders appeared to be still (just about) enjoying themselves. Or were at least able to muster a smile for the camera towards the end anyway.

The under 12s endures marginally better conditions than the older riders but still deserve congratulations just for turning up and riding.

Weather conditions on the day were decidedly damp, with no let up throughout the event, turning what would be a fast course into a quagmire with some of the riders choosing to run along flat sections of the course due to the amount of mud and ruts that were forming.
The eventual winner of the event was Steven Ward (MTS cyclesport) but in my opinion all competitors deserved a medal for even turning up on a day like this!
