  • Trials Races 2017,

    Sadly, the 2017 Lightweight Trials Races were cancelled yesterday because of heavy snow which created potentially dangerous conditions on the roads throughout Oxfordshire and much of the Midlands. In the interests of the safety of athletes, officials and spectators the decision was taken at 9:00am to cancel racing for the day.

    With thanks to the CUWBC twitter account for the image of a very snowy Leander Club.
