Euan Wins the First of the National Under 14 Road Series at Hetton in the final Sprint.

Euan on the Podium again at Hetton in the first of what is hoped to be another great season !

Our other riders also did amazingly well with George Fox coming a hard fought 7th in the Youth Nutcracker race at Gandale and Joe Parker 14th. This was an amazing achievement for George as it was a tough field and all the rest of the riders were on expensive  bikes while George rode on the most basic of MT Bikes, incredibly heavy and with limited gears.

Success for our younger riders in the Sweat Monsters event, with 1st Girl for Amber Hull and Olivia Fox, 2nd for Finlay and Jack Ackroyd and 8th place for both Harry Fox and Milo Hull in their respective races.

BSCA Yorkshire Roller Championship Results

Last Saturday saw another successful Roller Championship with lots of exciting races from all the riders.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped on the day, we can't run it without all your help.

Here are the results with another great showing from EBCC.

Well done Jack!

Well done Jack! Rollapaluza went to his school for Sports Relief 2014. All the children raised sponsor money and entered a race which was timed. Jacks time was the fastest out of the school coming in at 13.99 and he won a medal.

Platinum Award for Caitlin

Well done to Caitlin  who was recently awarded her Platinum award from British Cycling. This was achieved through her doing 36+ hours of volunteering through EBCC and helping at cycle events outside of club. Caitlin has also done her Level 1 Coaching course.
