Thank you – from the organisers, Yorkshire Cyclo-Cross Association, we’d like to thank everyone involved in the weekend. A great line-up of riders who put on a superb show; the large and very enthusiastic crowds who made the event atmosphere so special on both days; British Cycling and their many event professionals for giving us the opportunity to hold the event and providing their strong backing in so many ways; to our many sponsors, headed by Triton Construction and Kinesis UK, without whom we could not have run the weekend; to the city of Bradford for hosting and supporting us; to the commissairing team for their calm, professional support and guidance; and finally, the most important people of all, the numerous volunteers who gave up their time before, during and after the event to make it run. In many ways it’s tempting to try to name-check everyone, but the sheer impossibility of accurately crediting all the unique volunteer contributions and their range of expertise is, in itself, an indication of just how many people gave so much to the event. Thank you again, to all the above – from the YCCA organising committee.
