Rutland Rouleur club member Owen Lightfoot travelled to Sherwood Pines over the weekend to compete in the SRAM Cyclocross Notts and Derby League.

Cyclocross is a steeplechase with modified road bikes, requiring the rider to race using multiple athletic endeavours - cycling and also running with their bike.

It requires skilful bike handling and is becoming increasingly popular in the UK.

For Owen, who competes in the Under-12 category, the race was about experience but in only his second ever race in this discipline, he finished a superb fourth against 68 other riders, proving his enormous potential in the sport.
