Report: Greg Simcock (phil corley cycles) returned to winning ways on saturday afternoon, putting in a powerful display to cross the line a clear winner of the Redgrave cyclocross, round 7 of the Eastern league promoted by Diss & District cc.

The course at Redgrave near Diss is simple enough yet one of the most strength sapping in the eastern league with only a short road section to break up the slog through the soft grass round the playing field, from the start of the senior/junior and elite vet race the usual suspects were heading the front of the race with Andy Nichols (cambridge uni) and Simcock renewing their battle from Hillyfields, the pace from these two soon saw Nathan Miller (xrt - elmy cycles) drop off the back at the end of the 1st full lap followed a couple of laps later by Shaun Aldous (extreme sports therapy/CCN), Nichols had simcock on the ropes around half distance but a technical error on one of the tricky sections cost the younger rider, once in front Simcock pushed on opening a comfortable lead, going on to take his first win since January 2005.

Three riders soon forged their way ahead in the vets and womens race, Tim Butler (ipswich bc) and Phil Buick (thetford mtb) having Geoff Bores (ford cc) for company early on. Butler found the strength to distance Buick midway through the 40 minute race and held the gap to the line, some consolation for the Buick family as Anna Buick (thetford mtb) was a comfortable winner of the womens race.

Unlike the seniors alot of the youth riders saved themselves for the following days inter area championship, Alwyn Newstead (ipswich bc) proved too strong for Matthew Madgwick (lea valley youth) and James Tapley (cambridge triathlon club) to take a comfortable win, Tapley was 1st U14 whilst Francesca Morgans-Slader was 1st girl in 7th overall.

Georg Jenson (lea valley youth) was a clear winner of the U12's race with local girl Sophie Holmes (diss & district cc) 1st girl in 5th overall.
