Keeping the old ‘uns on their toes and training the next generation of competitive cyclists, promising young riders from Abergavenny CC (Becky James and Amy Hill’s club) join the Cardiff JIF cyclo-cross training session at Blackweir. Riders from Cardiff Tri and Cardiff Ajax also add to the mix for competitive loops through the woodland and some interesting attempts at bunny-hopping the boards. Sessions like this are very beneficial; Fast technical work, team building, mentoring and bridge building between coaching groups all vie for accolade of ‘main benefit’.

With thanks to Ian and Laura for organising.
