Pleasant day at the cyclo cross today in Castlereagh at the outskirts of Belfast, the Orangefield velodrome used as starting point and part of the course ..windy morning but rain stayed away..probably Brian Kinning (RIP) had a word with the weather gods..we even had sunshine in the afternoon..From the U/6 fun race till the main A race all competitors stayed dry..the course very fast and no mud this time around. Kinning Cycling with race director Glenn served us 7 different races, helped by neighbouring clubs like VC Glendale whom also organised a BBQ in aid of wee Ellen, her family and friends try to raising funds to send the child to the United States for treatment of her cancer not available overhere. More news very soon how to help or donate.  In the lady race we saw a comeback of Fran Meehan (ex Irish CX champ and olympian) who managed 3th for her new team Kinning’s. David Conroy (Scott) won the main race in his usual style with a wheelie at the end.
