London Cyclo-Cross League races round 5 – Sunday October 7th @ Herne Hill.
We are keen to get a good turnout from our Penge riders – as Penge will be using this race on Sunday 7th October to take on teams from Bigfoot, Limited Edition CC and Herne Hill Youth – and hopefully win. We want girls and boys from our club racing in all the age categories, including both riders who have raced this year in the South London Go-Ride Racing League and those who have not (including our best riders!). The Team Cup rules are simple – you ride as individuals, not as a team, the best placed riders from each club score points and the team with the most points wins.
There are two cups one Team Cup reserved for riders who have taken part in this year’s South London Go-Ride Racing League (SLGRRL); and another Team Cup where all riders in our club can help us to win.
