Report: Another fast flowing course greeted riders who turned up to race the Amis Velo hillyfields cyclocross in Colchester on Sunday round 5 of the eastern cyclocross league.

The senior race including juniors and elite vets was once again led from the 1st lap to the finish by junior Hugo Robinson (xrt -elmy cycles), having taken 22nd the previous week in the junior superprestige race in Rudervoorde, Belgium. Robinson's pace was just too fast on the opening lap with Shaun Aldous (extreme sports Therapy) briefly staying in touch with the Ipswich youngster before dropping back to a chase group containing Andy Nichols (cambridge uni), Greg Simcock (phil corley cycles) and Robinson's teammate Nathan Miller. After 3 laps Robinson had built up a lead of almost 30 seconds but the pace was still on in the chase group with Nichols and Simcock often swopping places to try and take a tactical advantage on the course as Aldous bided his time behind and Miller began to drop off the pace eventually being replaced in 5th spot by leading elite vet Gary Lingard (cc hackney), with Robinson's lead pegged at 30 secs Aldous moved to the front of the chase with 3 laps to go putting Simcock into trouble, desperate to have the lead into any singletrack section Nichols forced his way past Aldous, with 2 to go Simcock had clawed his way back into the race for 2nd, into the final lap Robinson was safe with a 30second cusion and the spectators attention was drawn to the battle for 2nd, Nichols seemed the quicker in a straight line, Aldous tried in vein to find a way past throughout the last half lap as Nichols battled to stay in front, the pair shelling Simcock, the pair came into the finish straight together but with Nichols leading Aldous could do more than hold his wheel to the line.

A trio soon formed at the front of the Vets and Women's race with Tim Butler (ipswich bc) forcing the early pace before being overhauled by Gary Allan (ga cycles) who opened up a 20 second winning advantage with Phil Buick (thetford mtb) in 3rd. Joolz Halpin (Maldon & District) enjoyed the fast technical sections at hillyfields and comfortably won the womens race.

Alan Trolove (west suffolk wheelers) and Sean Dunlea (pca ciclos uno) soon pulled away from the rest in the youth race, but Dunlea found Trolove's pace too much and Trolove romped away for the win, Imogen Buick (thetford mtb) beat all but 4 of the boys to take the 1st youth girl prize and 5th overall.

Zak Coleman (gt yarmouth cc) outsprinted Pierce Bacon (ipswich bc) after nearly 15 mins of racing to win the Under 12's race with Sophie Holmes (diss and district) 1st girl and 6th overall.
