Huge Turn-out for Cyclocross in Ormeau Park

Roger Aiken, Beth McCloskey and Andrew Hicks were the dominant riders in the three cyclocross races promoted by Xmtb McConvey Cycles on Sunday. Aiken of Asea Wheelworx, showed his skills in the A race where once again he was ahead of the field . Sporting his National Champions jersey he covered the seven laps of the mucky and technical course with ease. Barry Kellett of Dromara CC who has proved to be a worthy adversary in recent years was second with the promoting club's Graham Boyd in third position.

In the women's race it was another National Champion, Beth McCloskey who was to the fore. Gill Smith Phoenix CC and Breda Horan Scott Orwell Wheelers were second and third with one lap down.

In the B race it was Andrew Hicks Newry Wheelers CC who took the win ahead of Brian Wilson of Dromara Cycling Club and club mate Michael Havern.

There was a full programme of Youth races as well as the usual mountain bike support races. For full report and all the results see www.ustercyclocross.com
