Welsh Cyclocross 2018 – Round 7 Swansea

Another good Cyclocross Race, and this time I’m pleased to say that rather than saying my race report comes from somewhere in the middle of the pack, it’s actually coming from a little closer to the pointy end. Still not at the pointy end of course – far from it in fact, but it was...

Welsh Cyclocross 2018 – Round 6 Newtown

Those of you paying attention will notice that Round 5 seems to be missing. Unfortunately Storm Callum resulted in widespread flooding around South Wales, with the Carmarthen area being pretty badly hit. Now, a little bit of weather doesn’t usually deter us hardy cyclocross types but there is a limit. Travelling was not advised during...
