Play Mistley for me

Posted: November 27, 2014

My Eastern League adventures continue, with some more typical cyclocross conditions adding to the excitement. Last weekend’s race at Mistley in Essex was one of the most technical on the calendar, with a wooded hillside providing the setting for one of the few local races that is probably better tackled on a mountain bike. The […]

Mud, please…

Posted: October 29, 2014

The weather seems finally to have turned in our part of the world. File treads and short sleeves are gradually being replaced by mud tyres and arm-warmers, although the real ‘cross weather is yet to come. I’ve had a taste of what’s in store on my local training rides. In the space of a rainy […]

The Season Begins (again)

Posted: September 25, 2014

Thanks to Neil Ellison for the photograph I’ve had a lot of fun these past few weeks, getting the ‘cross bikes set up and out on the trails. The pre-season prep included a great 3 day “Cross Camp” spent with my Hackney GT teammates and my brand new Major Jake, riding hard and hanging out […]

Broome Heath Scramble

Posted: December 15, 2013

I’ve covered a lot of miles in pursuit of cyclocross over recent weeks, and Sunday saw the longest drive yet – a five hour round trip to take part in the aptly-named Broome Heath Scramble near Bungay in North Suffolk. This was race 12 of 14 in the Elmy Cycles Eastern Cyclocross League, and one […]

Weekend Double ‘Cross

Posted: December 2, 2013

It was a double-header last weekend, with an eastern League race at Grafham on Saturday and a London League event at Penshurst on Sunday. I’m feeling pretty tired right now, but I’m glad I made the effort and pleased with my results… Saturday was almost a washout, as I arrived 10 minutes after guaranteed sign-on […]

A Trip to the Palace

Posted: October 30, 2013

I‘ve been having a lot of fun with the cyclocross so far this season. The bikes have been behaving, the legs have been in reasonable shape and the weather has remained the right side of awful, with just enough mud to keep me on my toes. Apart from the first race, I’ve been on the […]

Race Reports

Posted: October 20, 2013

A brief rundown of recent races: Hillyfields: A homecoming of sorts, this race took place in the grounds of my former art college in Colchester. It’s been 20 years and I had hoped for a triumphant return, but Ross Tricker got away early and, although I was 2nd for most of the race, an in-form […]
