A really nice HD film that looks ace on a Mac (what doesn’t?). It sure looks cold but where’s the mud? I have ridden a few CX races and while I have enjoyed them, none have really inspired me like this film does. Now I have Jake the Snake in the shed there really is no excuse for not getting out there. Next season then… grrrr (or is that a whimper really?)

Broken link alert!

Copy and paste the link then join the numbers to the / and it should work.

I came across this. This is more like it. The best bit? It has to be the fun the crowd is having on that muddy drop/corner combo. Every time there is a crash they howl with laughter! Brilliant

Dusk til Dawn 2010 was a bit muddy too. I took part in this, I won’t say raced because as soon as the rain set in it was just a mudfest and almost unrideable. I was walking in sections and overtaking riders who were reduced to granny rings. I baled out after a few laps with light failure. Not the best video as it doesn’t show the mud but there is a hint of what was to come!

CX in the sun!

I hope this link works. This the sort of CX race I’d like. Sun and NO MUD!

EDIT:

The Mildenhall Cycle Rally – one of the grass track events. ..a rather more sedate (and local) version of racing in the sun

If you haven’t been to the Mildenhall Cycle Rally, I recommend you give it a try. It is lots of fun and there are trade stands selling kit off cheap (OK the cheap stuff might be a bit retro but isn’t that fashionable nowadays?)
