You might have heard some of the older WCOC Juniors talking about "Lagganlia", "Deeside", "Norway", "Talent Camp" and so on.  To get an idea of what it is like to attend one of these various summer training camps and tours:

- here is a link to a video from this year's "Lagganlia" Tour, and

- here is another link to various reports from WCOC and LOC Juniors who have attended them.

Happy watching / reading - it might just inspire you...

The 2018 WCOC AGM will be held at Wild Zucchinis, Cockermouth at 7pm on Thursday 18th October.

Peter Palmer winners again - another superb effort from all our Juniors! They've only gone and won entries and accommodation at 10Mila 2019 in Skane, Sweden for a WCOC Team. As always many many thanks to all the drivers and helpers, to WCOC for all your support, to SYO for putting on such a great event, to the Junior who returned from Uni and those who delayed going to Uni until after the race! You really are all Best in the West!
