Long-time stalwarts and innovators of cyclo cross; Kinesis UK have come on board to support the 2017/18 London and South East League.
James Booth of Kinesis UK says: “For the forthcoming season we, that’s Kinesis are really proud to be supporting the London Cyclo-Cross League. Over the years a number of staff has taken part in the pain and suffering of cross and in particular the London League and so it made complete sense to support them when asked. The London League provides a really good level of racing for riders within the south east and the courses are always fun to ride and make for some great races wherever you are in the race.”
“Kinesis will not only be providing the overall prizes for the League, we will be out there competing in the races to get first-hand experience, whilst testing some new product that we have coming for the season ahead.”
“So come along and see us or heckle us in the races, starting at Stanmer Park for the first round.”
Stuart McGhee of the London Cyclo Cross Associations says: “We are very excited to have Kinesis UK as title sponsors of the London Cyclo Cross League for the coming season. Kinesis have put together a fantastic array of podium prizes for the London and South East Cyclo Cross winners of each category that will be presented at the annual Prize presentation at the LCCA team champs in February 2018. Please look out for details soon”
“Kinesis also recognise that each week every rider may have to overcome a personal challenge, whether it’s a puncture, a crash, mud or overcoming a very technical course. To assist in surfacing theses epic struggles there will be a “Rider of the day” award that will be selected at each race by a group of the organisers, Commissaries, Race Judges and Kinesis ambassadors. Each winner will be presented with their prize at the start line of the next League event”.
John Mullineaux of the London Cyclo Cross Assoc., welcomed the renewed relationship with Kinesis UK: “I was thinking about this and then it dawned on me that when I first really got involved with London cyclo cross in the 1990’s Kinesis were our sponsors. It feels a little bitter sweet as this will be my last season with the LCCA just as that relationship is re-kindled.”
Challenge Tyres #Your challenge “Rider of the Day”
Each week of the Kinesis UK London and South East Cyclo Cross League we will be awarding a set of Challenge Tyres to a rider who has shown that cyclo cross spirit.
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.
