Good luck to every one at the Ridley Scottish Cyclocross Championships tomorrow!

This is the first year I’ve raced non-stop through winter due to taking on Cyclocross, the first ‘big race’ to hit the road race calendar in 2014 is Battenkill with the sign up attracting the kind of fever that One Direction Concert tickets bring teenage girls. At a time I was lamenting having to shift from discipline to the next with consistent race pressures this has got me stoked to get back on the road bike.
I’ve been in Austin for the past week and will be for the following 2. Team Yacht Club have taken me under their wing as one of their own and I’m having a blast in this town. On Saturday I met up with the guys at Mellow Johnny’s and rolled out to Walnut Creek trails. At some points it felt like an initiation with flash floods making some of the sections trickier than anticipated and making the portage across the river interesting.
Myself and Tyler rolled out early on Sunday to BCRCX in Houston. The weather has been incredible here compared to the east coast and it was no hardship for me to watch the rest of the fields race with the 4/5 being the last to go; I’m used to being the first! The course and orginisation for the day was incredible, with a really well balanced course, great structure to the day and awesome prizes. Eager to exorcise some demons from my first 9 or 10 races and spurred on by being the out-of-towner I managed to bag my first win of the season and was more than stoked.
Looking forward to riding more of Austin and gettin RAD in Georgetown this weekend.
On Sunday a few of us went to Alexandra Palace for Rapha Supercross 2013 and we were there in force, not to race, but to spectate. Maybe next year a few of #5thLDN boys will be there getting muddy. Our man Erik Jonsson took some killer photos, make sure you head to Build Ride Rinse to check out the first set of photos.
This RHC video is SO good!
…at least 10 times where I would have died!
Insane POV of Kelly McGarry’s ride at Red Bull Rampage 2013, GoPro makes things better.
If you follow our friends from Pristine on instagram you saw the good social media coverage they did during the gran finale of RHC. But to top that they’ve put together this nice video recap from the event. Good work dudes.
