National Trophy Round 1, Derby

The National Trophy Series is the UK’s premier cyclocross series and keeps growing every season. This year it had a sandpit! Looking back through the previous trophies, it’s great to see the growth of the event in Derby. And there was a sandpit. It chucked it down the night before and made conditions firm but slippery. It’s been ages since there was a wet race in Derby, and it made all those off camber turns a proper challenge. Also, there was a sandpit.
