Saturday November 30th saw the 2nd round of the revolution series to come to my hometown of Glasgow. We were lucky enough to be invited along by Evans Cycles to watch the evenings racing and to have a good look at the new HOY bikes range. Which luckily enough for me meant I got to share 45 minutes on track with Sir Chris himself in order to have a closer look at the Fiorenzuola track bike in action.

Many thanks to Sir Chris and Evans Cycles for the invite and to Stephen Hughes for the captures.

My final 2 weeks in Austin carried on the trajectory set up from the first. The Team Yacht Club guys were exceptional hosts and the racing coalition continued as we hit up Georgetown CX for a full weekends racing. I was fortunate enough to grab a 4th on the Saturday followed by a 2nd on the Sunday.

Once again The Cycle Show returned to the NEC Birmingham this past weekend and like every year I took the short drive down the M42 to see what goodies were on display.
This year’s event was by far the busiest one I’ve been too since the Cycle Show was reintroduced to the midland’s venue 3 years ago. With the well documented success of British Cycling over the last 12 months within many disciplines, it was little surprise to see such an influx of people attending the event this year. Thankfully there was plenty of products for the attendants cast their eyes at.
Again, I was more an happy to help out my friends here at The 5th Floor with some shots I got from the day and a write up.
