Challenge Tyres Rider of the Day at Round 9 – 2017/18

Challenge Tyres #Your challenge “Rider of the Day” at the ninth round of the Kinesis UK London and South East Cyclo Cross League, held at Cyclopark on November 19.

The battle for the win in the womens race was the race of the day. Emily Ashwood and Louise Heywood-Mahe battled hard all race with Louise demonstrating her power and Emily her technical skill on a pretty demanding course. Coming into the big uphill and then the downhill cambered run Louise took the lead but Emily kept her cool, even when negotiating over taking back markers in the V50 race on the last downhill to take a well deserved win.

Well done Emily. Enjoy those Challenge baby limus open tubulars.

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.
