East Bradford Cycling Club - Cyclo-Cross racing for Under 12's on Sunday, National Trophy Practice and Help Wanted

Hi All,
Bradford is hosting the National Trophy round for Cyclo-Cross on this Sunday 15th December at Peel Park. For those who don't know about it, it's cross country on a bike. For the Under 12 age category (those born in 2002 or later), there are short races on the grass around the park (and possibly the easy part of the BMX course). You can enter on the day.
The races will be split into Under 8 (born 2006 or later), Under 10 (Born 2004 and 2005) and Under 12 (Born 2002 and 2003). For older children, if you haven't entered, it is too late to do so. The races are about ten minutes for the Under 8's up to 15 - 20 minutes for the Under 12's. Every rider will get sweets at the end for taking part and prizes will be given for the top three boys and girls in each age category.
We want as many East Bradford Kids there as possible to show the club off as it's our local event. Even if you aren't riding, come and support the East Bradford Kids who are in both the Under 12 races and the Youth and Junior races - these take part on the main course up the hill from the BMX and under 12 race.

Under 12's start at 12.30 but you need to be there for  no later than 12 to sign on. Cost is £1

Under 12 signing on is at the BMX track at Peel Park up the rough track just north of the junction of Cliffe Road and Bolton Road.

The address is for the Under 12 competition is :;
Peel Park
North View Road, BD3 0NF
The main park postcode is:
Bolton Road, Bradford, BD3 0LR
More details here: National Trophy Event Information
We hope to take the EBCC Event tent for members to use on the day, it will be sited where the main competition is to be held near the cafe in the park and is the green dome!

Some of our Youth riders who are racing on Sunday are meeting up at 11.30 ish on Saturday to ride the course at peel park, so if you are racing you are welcome to join them.
Bike Club including Road training will be on as usual - the Under 12 course will not be set up for Saturday just the Youth and adult one.

Our Youth riders who are racing at 13.30 on Sunday need a couple of willing volunteers to help out during their race. The races have pits where each rider should have someone (usually a parent) to give out spare wheels etc during the race, however if they have a mechanical or bikes need mud clearing off them during the race (CX bikes get very muddy and riders often change bikes on a regular basis during the event), we could do with willing volunteers to clean up the bikes during the race or sort out any mechanical problem. If anyone wants to offer help between 1.15 and 2.15 on the day, please get in touch with Mandy. If would be great if we could provide club support in this way.
