East Kent Cyclocross – On a Hill in Sunny Kent for round 4

East Kent Cyclocross – On a Hill in Sunny Kent for round 4. Due to other work commitments I didn’t cover much cycling in 2018 and I haven’t been able to get to any of the East Kent Cyclocross rounds this season either. So as one of the last jobs for me in 2018 off I went on a sunny Sunday to a farm I’ve never been to, whats not to like? By the way this is by no means a race report, just me musing a little and posting a few of my favorite pictures. If you want to look a results then head over to thier Facebook Page. I must admit I had one of those double take moments when I first saw ‘the Hill’

Yes the hill at Park Farm deserves the legendary status that it is given

Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, the course wound its way up into a small wood at the far end. Needless to say I was pretty glad I wasn’t riding it!

The tough woodland section just didn’t give riders a chance to rest.

So I spent my day running from one end of the course to the other! The gurning faces were just testiment to just how tough the course was!

The gurning faces spoke volumes about how tough the course was.

There is a full gallery here but for now here are a few of my favorites from the races.

The Senior race was comfortably won by Ian Field who lapped everyone up to third place!

Ian Field won comfortably in great form

January is shaping up to be a great month for CX as the next East Kent Cyclocross round is in Dover fon 20th January for the first time in 15 years! However, before that the National Championships are being held at Cyclo Park over the weekend of 12th and 13th January. I’ll be at both so sit tight for some pictures from both events.
