CYCLE Sport Pendle riders, Oliver Payton from Colne and Martin Woffindin from Burnley won their respective categories in the 2012/2013 Northwest Cyclo-cross League.

Oliver won the Junior category overall and Martin topped the under 23 category.

The Cyclo cross league runs from September to January and is held at various venues in the north west region.

Points are accumulated from each race and it is the total points from the best 10 placings which are used to give the final results and rankings in each category.

In his first year as a junior, Oliver has established himself as a leading cross rider, not just at junior level but at senior level also, regularly competing against and beating experienced older riders.

Martin also placed fifth overall in the senior league as well as winning the under 23 category for the third year in a row.

Both riders are now targeting the road season for the rest of 2013, competing in various regional and national events, along with team mates from Cycle Sport Pendle.
