There will be mud

January 2, 2012

My annual trip to Todmorden today – to watch cyclocross racing round the park – the conditions were ideal for this strangest of sports. Mud and plenty of it. Even though it is part of a league, anyone can turn up to race, but I wouldn’t recommend it if you mind falling off or getting your bike dirty. Like most cycling though, you can get close enough to the action to get splatted in mud or run over if you get in the way.

  3. Came across a video by Benjamin Haworth of the race:
