HSBC UK NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

I’ve been looking forward to the Nationals in Hetton. It’s a great course with plenty of natural features and a continental feel to the elevation changes and wide turns. It was a surprise to find fairly dry conditions after all the rain of the previous month. Thanks to everyone for putting on a great event.

Cross in the UK is currently flourishing thanks to all the new talent coming through and the skill of those who nurture and advise it. This weekend saw the fastest overall lap by a Junior rider and U23 riders with all the pace to compete and win in Elite competition, it will be really exciting to see how this talent fares in the Worlds next month. CXHandbook will be in Valkenburg to bring you all the action from the biggest stage in cyclocross.

The gallery captions take up the story. Thanks for looking.
