All the podiums from this the last LVRC cyclocross championship held at the Warwick Adventure Sports Centre. Mick Ives dropped a bombshell at the end by saying that, after 11 years, his team will not be promoting the cross championships again. However they do propose to resurrect an old cross event namely that of a Madison-Cross. Sounds interesting.
