Cycle Sport Pendle won back the Under 16 boys’ team trophy after the last race of the North West Cyclo-Cross Association League.

The three highest-placed riders from one club were all from CSP, with the boys who took part Bailey Payne from Earby, Cory Edmondson from Nelson and Tim Jones from Padiham.

Cyclists have ridden throughout the winter on wet, cold and muddy courses across the North West.

In order to qualify for a league position, riders had to compete in at least nine of the 14 races held, and Martin, of Cycle Sport Pendle, again emerged triumphant.

Cyclo-cross, as a discipline, demands good bike handling skills, as well as power and technical ability for the sections, with planks to cross, sand pits, hair pin turns, steps and, this year, lots of slippery mud.

Several riders from Cycle Sport Pendle have taken part in this year’s competition with great results.

Briercliffe’s Martin Woffindin retained his Under 23 title for the fourth successive year.

CSP is a British Cycling-accredited Go-Ride club based in the areas radiating from Pendle Hill, aiming to introduce youngsters and their families to cycle sport and safe leisure riding. For more details, go to
