There are no trophies for the summer series, but all the series prize money will be presented across the various categories. As in previous years, the overall standings will be based on riders top 5 scores from the 7 event series, and as in previous years we are planning to take the prizes down to recognise all who completed 5 events. The evening will include the presentations, buffet, music etc; it’s also an opportunity to chat about the incoming winter season, we will let you know about any changes and the overall plans for what looks like a busy season.
Many, many thanks to Fox Valley Trek and Eleconline for sponsoring the series, their support has made it possible to maintain a good prize list, despite participation numbers being down this year.
We are still struggling to complete the final standings, awaiting some outstanding result info from chip timing, and consequently complete the prizes. Watch the website, it will appear asap.
Following the sad loss of YCCA chairman Peter Milsom, the family have asked we post the funeral details:
Friday 30th August at 2.20pm:
Stand bridge Lane,
Wakefield, WF4 3JA
And afterwards at Ossett Cricket & Bowling Club
Dimple Wells Road, Ossett, WF5 8JT.
Family flowers only, and donations would be appreciated for prostrate cancer.
Peter was a long, long serving member of YCCA, and a life member of British Cycling. The life membership being awarded to Peter in recognition of delivering the world Cyclo cross championship, the last time it was staged here in the UK. That was back in 1992 in Roundhay Park, Leeds. The weekend was a huge success and Peter was rewarded for all his hard work and commitment, by witnessing GB junior Roger Hammond lifting the world title, in front of a huge crowd. Peter was also an enthusiastic competitor and was a part of the successful Calder Clarion squad, competing every week in Yorkshire events, while at the same time organising events in the Wakefield area. As today it was very much a family contribution, sons Richard and Paul starting their involvement,which continues to this day, and wife Joan standing on the finishing line in all weather carrying out the ‘clipboard scoring’.
Peter will be very sadly missed by all, and YCCA thank him for his valuable contribution for over half a century.
