13 Dec Challenge Tyres Rider of the Day at Round 7 – 2017/18
Challenge Tyres #Your challenge “Rider of the Day” at the seventh round of the Kinesis UK London and South East Cyclo Cross League, held at Happy Valley, Brighton on October 29.
Loren Brackpool of the Crawley Wheeler’s came to the attention of a number of people as she spent the whole race with a smile on her face and seemed to be really be enjoying racing. She certainly helped to put the Happy in to Happy Valley. As you can see from the presentation photo at a cold, snowy and wet race at Frylands Wood, the evidence of a muddy face plant could still not stop that smile shining through.
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.
