Cycle Sport Pendle ran their first ever cyclo-cross race on Sunday at Craven sports centre Barnoldswick and judging by rider reaction, it will become a great fixture and venue.

The day kicked off with a Go-Race event and races for all youth categories, fields of 40 in both under 16s and under 12s. Promoting club Team CSP almost pulling off a double with Nathan Hawthorne first over the line in the Under 12 and Oliver Payton doing battle with Robert Rogers, Birkenhead NE in the Under 16, Robert taking the win by ten seconds.
