Morvello 2nd round city cross

On Saturday several members of EBCC entered 2 city cross race.  The venue was Piece Hall in Halifax.  for one day only the site was changed to create a cyclo cross race with a difference. 
with a new race format, manmade obstacles and city location mixed together with the traditional cyclocross party that is beer tents, cowbells and course side party atmosphere.

The course was heavily based on a traditional cyclocross courses, with grass, water and sand but also with concrete and cobbles. Nothing that endangers the riders though. There was also  manmade obstacles in the style of hurdles to jump over, things to bunny hop over and other bits to ride up and down and take multiple lines through.

The riders who battled for the finals got to ride in the floodlit area and around the 2nd floor balconies of Piece Hall - history was made.
 Well done to all who competed
 the Novices Rose and Chris and James, Under 8's Oliver and Harry Fox
the Youths Aaron, Joe, Tom, Will, Luke and George
