Challenge Tyres Rider of the Day at Round 6 – 2017/18

Challenge Tyres #Your challenge “Rider of the Day” at the sixth round of the Kinesis UK London and South East Cyclo Cross League, held at the South of England Showground, Ardingly on October 22.

“Proper” Cross of the year with ample helpings of mud. Tie into that the Many technical sections that Doug and his team had designed in the course, this would prove to be a day to showcase power and technical ability.

Phil Glowinski showed continued grit and determination in attempting to ride the technical sections of the course by riding the up the slippy bank section every lap, but the real show of class was that Phil was the only rider to remove their racing helmet when the Commissaire’s started a 1 minutes silence in memory of Cyclo Cross organizer Andy Bristow who sadly passed away a few weeks earlier.

Well done Phil, enjoy your Challenge Baby Limus open tubular tires. #challengetires #kinesisuk

PS, Phil could not wait to try the tyres and was spotted at the East Kent League trying them out.

Cyclo Cross is special. It brings out the very best in all of us. We all at some time have to overcome the odds and banish our personal demons to make it to the finish line. Be that minus some part of the bike, minus patches of skin or the dreaded ‘flat’, we never lose pride riding past that majestically waved chequered flag and say “I did it”. Kinesis UK recognise and respect what we put ourselves through each week and wish to award a rider at each round of the Kinesis UK London League series that displays the courage that makes Cyclo Cross racers a special breed.

For each award the selected rider will receive a pair of Challenge Griffo or Baby Limus Open tubulars. They will be presented at the start line at their next race.

Challenge handmade Tubular and Open Tubular Cyclo Cross tyres are top of the tree when it comes to quality and performance. They have been used at the highest level and won many world championships. They have a tire for every condition. If you are looking to gain that edge on the competition I suggest you try Challenge. Grifo’s are great for faster drier courses and Limus or Baby Limus come into their own when the mud arrives. Check out the range on the link below.
