Never Mind The PolloCX
Now here’s an interesting event – not only was the women’s race guaranteed to be women only (“no junior or V50 men,” no matter how many women signed up), the entry fee included a 90-minute women-only coaching session courtesy of the Glasgow Riderz club. That certainly earns NS’s seal of approval.

Winning U16 at CXNE #11 Olivia Bent

CXNE #11
Most riders would be happy enough with one victory per weekend, but Ava Oxley-Szilagyi (PH Mas-VCUK) didn’t see her win at the SRAM Notts & Derby League, 02.01) as any reason not to go for this one too – after all, it’s good podium practice a week before the Nationals, isn’t it? It paid off: she’s now National U14 Champion, and NS suspects we’re going to be seeing her pull many more stripey jerseys across the course of her career. Nice one, Ava!
