West Buckland near Barnstaple was the venue of choice for the third round over the South West Cyclo Cross Series on Sunday. Once again the weather was very kind to us with 18 degrees and sunshine and barely a trace of any mud ! The venue is renowned for its immaculately tended lawns and pitches and didn’t disappoint, however this year a short wooded section and some low sleepers were inserted to keep us on our toes.
Once again a good showing from the Cross Collective with xx riders pacticipating with good results across all the age groups and a welcome return to racing for Oscar Weissler (although sadly puncturing)
