A flooded course in 2014

Wivelsden Farm is infamous for being the venue of the ‘Worst Cyclo Cross Race in the History of All Things – GO THERE

Although not really a lost course as it was used just the once, but it was certainly a drowned course. The venue was the scene of round 9 of the 2014/15 season and organised by Mark Tearle. It was in fact a true sporting occasion that brought out the best in all. Who knows we might even race there again but next time let’s take boats just in case!?

Nick Welsh: “The most almighty slog ever.”

Tony Bartlett: “Yep Proper snorkel and flippers job.”

Joseph Mulligan: “Have to say it was my best result as a youth. I remember one of the senior riders taking a dip in the ponds afterward to clean off.”

John Cordner: “It was so wet my lads took shelter in an empty wheelie bin, eating chips bought on the proceeds of u10’s winnings. Great event.”
