Hetton Lyons Country Park played host to the opening round of the British Cycling National Youth Circuit Series, the Kudos Wealth Management Youth Circuit Races.
Under-14 Boys

Robert Donaldson (Mossley CRT) took the plaudits in the under 14 boys race from a bunch sprint, riding Evan Richards (Towy Riders) and Billy Lazenby (Chevin Cycles) into second and third respectively.

It was an early attack from Oscar Nilsson-Julien (VC Londres) that sparked the race into action, holding the big field at bay for the opening five laps. Junior Jackson (Mossley RT), Hugo Lutz-Atkinson (Speedflex RT) and Guto Dayfydd (Towy Riders) tried to jump across but the main field was too quick and the four were easily swallowed up.

Lichfield’s Emile Alexander instigated the attack with six laps remaining but was allowed to get any kind of gap. A counter attack from Jackson again wasn’t allowed to gather any gap, Alexander hanging on his every move and jumping over the Mossley rider on the penultimate lap. But as the bell rang out the field was back together to ready themselves for the big sprint, Donaldson having the legs to take the win.

Mossley Members riding for Charity.


Three members and two riders who support Mossley on a few rides etc today took part in the Willow Wood “Big bike ride”, this was a challenging ride with a few tough short climbs around the back of Hartshead Pike and Berry Brow.

Albeit the ride distance was 20 mile, in total they rode 27 mile by the time they had got to the circuit and home, an average total of £300 was raised by the Mossley Three in sponsorship to support the Willow Wood hospice, which Mossley CRT worked closely with on a few occasions last year. Well done to Sue, Kirstie & Martin along with the support from Paul and Toby.

You can still donate to a great cause Willow Wood click.
