Challenge Tyres Rider of the Day at Round 8 – 2017/18

Challenge Tyres #Your challenge “Rider of the Day” at the eighth round of the Kinesis UK London and South East Cyclo Cross League, held at Leeds Castle on November 12.

Picture the scene. Your in the lead of the vets 40 race. It’s a tough course and certainly one to add to the palmares. Then Lady Luck deserts you and you snap off your rear mech. No spare bike and only option is to run the last lap. But you have a Knight in shining armour, a rider steps forward and gives you his race bike to finish the race. (All in the pits of course) well done Glen Whittington  that is totally what cross is all about.

Enjoy those Challenge Baby Linus tyres. #yourchallenge #kinesisuk #challengetires — with Glen Whittington.

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.
