Dropping Like Flies - National Cyclo Cross Trophy
It was a journey to Bradford this weekend to watch, cheer, take part and support our friends and Rapha Condor team mates. Racing in this round of the series was our designer, Ben, Emily from the Rapha Condor women's team, and Joe from the Rapha Condor junior squad.
The course was excellent and the day started on rock hard frozen ground, but as more wheels took to the course it soon warmed up and got cut up - most notably on the difficult descent, which became the place to be to watch the race and the falls.
Here's a link to what we think is the best video from the senior's race.
Below are videos of the descent and also a full eight minute video from British Cycling. Be warned: the music is pretty intense. Plus, photographer Cheryl King has some excellent images on her Flickr.
N.B.: Ben didn't crash on the descent, nor did our product photographer, Andy Waterman, nor did Emily or Joe. Kudos!
