Thomas Hepburn Wins At Lady Dixon, Rocks on Podium

Date: Sunday 13 October 2013
Event: Ulster Cyclo-cross Round 2
Location: Lady Dixon Park
Host club: Phoenix CC

It was a great day for the Wheelers at Round 2 of the Cyclo Cross series at Lady Dixon Park last Sunday.  Thomas Hepburn bagging a fantastic win with Raymond Rocks close behind in 3rd place in the Cyclo Cross ‘B’ race.  It was only last week that these pair were in the thick of the action at round 1 of the series at Lurgan Park with both men finishing in the top 10.  Everybody knew that both these men had what it takes to go on and win a race, and the results were nothing more than deserved for the men after all the hard work they have put in.  Thomas Hepburn not one won the race, but is the first Island Wheeler to win an open CX race which makes his victory all the more sweeter.  Raymond Rocks has now finished 4th and 3rd in only his first two ever CX races, hopefully he can keep the good run going coming up to the Wheelers race this weekend.

As usual there was a great turn out for the youth races, however the results have yet to be released.  These will appear here once made available.  The Ulster Cyclo Cross race report can be viewed here.
