Report: Mud finally made it's way into the Eastern Cyclocross League on Sunday for round 8 the Colchester rovers promotion at Furze Hill, Mistley nr Manningtree, Essex.

The first race of the day the Vets and Womens race escaped the worst of the weather with rain only beginning to fall as riders finished, after 2 minutes silence for rememberance day Bruce Robinson (shaftesbury cc) soon rode away from the field with Geoff Bores(ford cc) and Tim Butler (ipswich bc) having a close scrap for the minor placings. Sue Wood(maldon and district) continued her domination of the womens league for another comfortable win ahead of teammate Joolz Halpin, Nicki Davis (walden tri) took the final podium spot.

Rain didn't put off the youngsters as the under 12's whizzed round a shortened race route missing out on the dangerous decents in the full course, Georg Jenson (lea valley youth) distanced his rivals on the first lap for a convincing win over Zak Coleman(gt yarmouth cc) and Pierce Bacon(ipswich bc), Sophie Holmes (diss and district) was first girl mixing high up with the boys in 5th overall.

Alwyn Newstead(ipswich bc) and George Wood(maldon and district) had a close battle in the youths race whilst the rain continued to fall making the course more and more slippery, George led for the first lap but Alwyn was never far away and it was the ipswich youngster who took the spoils opening a gap on the final lap, Archie Wishart(welwyn wheelers) was 1st under 14 and 3rd overall.

The final race of the day for senior/junior and elite vets saw lap times far slower than earlier races as the rain and previous races had made several of the hills on the course unrideable, from the start Shaun Aldous (extreme sports therapy/CCN) lead out, keen to get to the first trecherous muddy decent first, avoiding any trouble Aldous was soon out of sight of the chasers led by elite vet Gavin Rumbles (cc luton), Rumbles was passed by a group of riders during the 2nd lap eventually slipping back to 11th, fellow elite vet Martin Carter (unnattached) battled with Richard Dunnett (diss and district cc), Dunnett finding the slippery course to his liking managed to pull away over the closing laps to take a fine 2nd place behind Aldous who despite gear troubles took the win, Carter hung on for 3rd from a fast finishing Matt Cook(wv eemland).
