Location: Davy Down Country Park, Back Lane, North Stifford, Essex, RM16 5UL. (Pilgrims Lane B186 turning off A1306)

Report: Held at the Davy Down country park in North Stifford, Essex, quite near the Lakeside shopping centre at Thurrock, round 6 of the Eastern cyclocross league saw several visitors from the London area as the London league race was actually further for them to travel.

Nathan Miller (xrt elmy cycles) led the charge away in the senior,junior,elite vet race and soon opened a small gap for the first couple of laps, seemingly back to form after doing the 3 peaks, Miller was chased by a group containing Andy Nichols (cambridge uni), Andrew Waterman (dulwich paragon) and his elite vet teammate Kevin Knox, Gary Lingard(cc hackney), Shaun Aldous (extreme sports therapy) and Darren Barclay (arctic rt). Barclay was a late call up to the front row and after a poor start worked his way through the group, catching and passing Miller on the 4th lap Barclay took the lead, the heavy going on some parts of the course to Barclay's liking and once at the front he didn't look like being caught, Having raced in Belgium the day before Andy Nichols slipped back through the now broken up group and retired leaving just Miller, Aldous and Waterman chasing Barclay with leading elite vet Gary Lingard a few seconds further back. Waterman was unlucky enough to get caught up in course marking tape with a few laps to the finish and was forced to stop leaving Miller and Aldous to sort out the final podium spots whilst Waterman himself dropped back to have a battle with Lingard, Miller seemed to wrap up 2nd place during the last lap, opening a gap on Aldous but he clawed his way back just before the dead turn into the finish where both riders slipped and Miller hung on for 2nd. Lingard finished 1st Elite Vet just behind Waterman, Patrick Cook (ipswich bc) took the 1st junior prize.

Bruce Robinson (shaftesbury cc) dominated the vets and womens race opening a gap on the 1st lap which he kept over Lee Desborough (st ives cc) to the finish, David Brown (essex roads cc) completed the podium. Sue Wood (maldon and district cc) opened a gap over Claire Beaumont (rapha condor) on the 1st lap, try as she might Beamont couldn't close the gap back to Wood the gap hovering at 15seconds for the whole race, Beamonts fast last lap to no avail. Jo Mcrae (st racing) completed the womens podium.

Alan Trolove (west suffolk wheelers) won the youth race, pulling away from Tom Franklin (Herne Hill youth cc) on the 2nd lap whilst franklin was caught and passed by the consistant pace set by Sean Dunlea (pca ciclos uno).

The Tulett boys took 1st and 2nd in the under 12's race with Daniel getting the better of his younger brother Ben both race for the Palmer park velo, Georg Jenson (lea Valley Youth) took 3rd whilst Sophie Holmes (diss and District cc) was 1st girl and 6th overall.
