Flood Lit Cross A Real Success

29848473896_a9a9ae41c3_mKinning Cycles promoted the first cyclocoss of the season on Friday night at Orangefield. The event was run off under floodlights and proved to be a great success. All the races attracted big numbers and the feedback was very positive.There were special winners jerseys presented which were designed by Victory Chimp and produced by Bioracer.

The main event of the night was won by Roger Aiken of Asea Wheelworx. Race Director, Glen Kinning did well to come second followed in by Graham Boyd of Xmtb McConvey Cycles.


In the Women's event Trudy Brown of VC Gendale proved to be the lady on form with the Phoenix CC duo of Gill Smith and Julie Rea completing the podium places.


In the B race David Broome of Dromara Cycling Club had the edge over Jonnie Boyle (TC Racing) and Connor Young of Kinning Cycles. This was a good result for Young as he has been absent from the cycling scene for the past two years.

Youth racing was also promoted on the  night with Lee Harvey of  Xmtb McConvey Cycles taking the win from Shay Donley (Ballymoney CC) and Jake Rushby of North Down CC in the U16 male category.


Niamh McKiverigan took the top spot in the U16 female category followed in by Ellie Kelso (East Tyrone Cycling Club) and Darcey Harkness (Carn Wheelers).


Dean Harvey  and Scott Roberts mad it a one/two for Xmtb McConvey Cycles in the U14 male category. Chris Stewart was third. Samantha Owens was the first female under 14 with Maria McAllister of Island Wheelers  taking second and Katie Neill of Carn Wheelers in third.


The event was well organised by a very small club and thanks must also go to Toby Watson of VC Glendale and his crew of helpers who were there to marshall the event.    29769859152_5884497486_z
