Rob at Beastway Yulecross raceCyclocross result

Rob tested out his new CPT kit at the Beastway Yule Cross Open Race at Beckenham Place Park.

Kevin raced in the vets race and Richard was a DNF in the G/Vet category. Richard came off his bike just before the finish and banged his head. He didn't know where he was. We hope he hasn't got a headache today!

Awards presentation and Xmas party - 3 December

We had a great turnout for this year's party which was organised by Michelle and Selwyn at the Prince Albert in Herne Hill and photographed by Brian.

Awards were handed out to this year's Club Champions, Club League winners and, as usual, Jon's comedy awards.

This year's Coach's Award went to Haydn for a successful year, culminating in racing in Kona at IM Hawaii. The Riding Trophy, which is awarded for an outstanding contribution or achievement, was presented to me (Karen) for services to the Club and Committee over the past 15 years!

Dan received the Fray Bentos pie for his ability to eat copious amounts while out cycling; Kev got the 'missing in action' award for getting lost on an ultra run, Rob got the 'hard as nails' award, Brigit won an original CPT swimming costume (can't remember what for) and I was presented with a crown for being 'Queen' of CPT!

Awards were also presented to those who made up the CPT London League teams throughout the season.

For those of you who aren't on Facebook, you can view Brian's photos on Flickr or view below.
