35 Welland Valley members have pre-entered round one, I'm also aware there are a few to enter-on-line. A fantastice representation from the cycling club.
There are over 40 members registered!
On behalf of the Leicestershire Cyclo-cross League I would like to thank the committee for the loan of race infrastructure to assist promoting clubs if required.
As a league we are very raw, but learning fast, we started with nothing. We are volunteers, cross lovers, keen to develop the sport locally. Over the last few months we have developed great relationships with supporters - Vanelli, High5, ITP Events, over 200 registered league riders have signed up and fingers crossed we have a cracking season lined up.
Finance is a massive issue, all of the promoting clubs have committed to share funds if needed - we cannot afford to make any loss.
As the season progresses we will learn and make adjustments.
Grassroots sport is at the heart of our vision. Remember 'green is good, brown is bad', have a fantastic season.
Dean Barnett, Secretary of the LCXL.
