The first cyclocross race

Cyclocross is a known winter sport, but here in Bristol we have a pretty awesome summer series too. Put on every Wednesday across the summer by various local organisations, this week was at Hengrove, and organised by Dream Cycling.

Luke, Rob & Tim decided to take on their first race this week, entering into a field of seasoned racers & those out for a laugh. The boys put in a great performance, Rob & Tim putting in big efforts together, riding well as a team & holding their own in a group of 5 not too far from the front of the field, with Luke just behind churning along on his 2.4" MTB tyres. No results right yet, but finishing in the heat & tough, flat course was a good achievement & there are plans to do a lot more CX races this summer, and no doubt in the winter series too. Thanks to Gabriel for the photos below, and to Nancy for the support & pro bottle hand ups.
