Midland Women's Cross Country League - Race 3 (11/01/2013)

On a day when we were all are thinking about the loss of Andy, it was good to see a decent turnout at the third XC race of the season, with the best team and best individual result of the season so far.

On an almost pancake-flat but very muddy course, we were treated firstly to a virtuoso performance by Triathlete star Non Stanford who skimmed over the mud with ease to win by a good margin. However, just ten places behind was our own Julie Caddick who surprised herself (and us!) by gaining 11th place - highest Tipton placing this season. Well done her!

Not too far behind in 24th came Sophie Lynch, making a welcome return to the team after a spell abroad. Third counter was the ever-consistent Lynne Hill in 27th. Sue Street-Hall was close behind in 29th and the ever-improving Penny Barber was 73rd. Overall the team scored just 62, the best total this season by far.

Well done ladies! Results

Fourth race is at Cheltenham 8th February.
