Yorkshire starts the Year with two National Championships. The opening Championship of the year saw a large entry list for the National Cyclo-Cross Championships held at Chantry Park Ipswich. Taking her first National title was Abby Mae Parkinson of the RST Racing Team who with a powerful display won the title by 45 secs. Moving up to the Youth A age group this year Abby has a platform to develop her ability. With her family background it comes as no surprise that she’s starting to shine, Mum Lisa Brambani was a multiple National Champion and Dad Mike Parkinson was a useful roadman in his time.
Completing the duo of Champions was evergreen Chris Young of the Wheelbase Team who carried off the jersey for the winner of the over 45 age group.
