Those ace folks at British Cycling have saved me a HUGE upload and gone and put the full national champs programme shown on British Eurosport on to their Youtube channel
Hi, My first post! Seasons greetings fellow crossers! Any ideas very welcome, cheers! I'm looking for a Ridley X Fire frameset 2013 (cantis) 52cm. Or a similar frameset sized 54cm, but must have bottle cage lugs, as I like to use my bike for road training as well as CX racing. Framesets don't seem such easy things to source (in my limited experience)? I'd go for a Kinesis Evo if it had lugs, but oh well..
Breaking news from Namur - Britain will have its own World Cup Cyclocross event on 29th November 2014. The race will be in Milton Keynes.
All the details I know are here http://www.cyclo-cross.info/cyclocross/2013/12/23/groot-brittanie-krijgt-wereldbekermanche-in-2014/
I don't know what it is, or how to describe just why, but this is still just the best 'cross course in our country. (Okay - the best with under 7,000ft of climbing).
With my injury, I was a spectator this year, but did that spoil my enjoyment? It did not.
Here's a big bunch of photos I took (sorry - i only just arrived at the end of the J / W event and only started taking pics for the U16s and Sen / U23 event.
My piccies are…Continue

I'm looking at buying a CX bike but unsure about what size to aim for, I'm 5ft 3" and have been told to look for around 48. Does anybody have any advise or is a shorty like me and have a CX bike that's a comfortable size?Any advise would be great! ThanksContinue
It appears like the Shimano Pressfit 86 Bottom bracket in my frame is creaking under pressure. I've already removed cleaned and re-greased the pedals and chainset.Creaking BB86 gets loads of hits when googled, so I guess it's nothing new. In my mind the 'problem' is the use of plastic cups which surely must deform over time. I also wonder if the cups can work loose and creep slowly out of the frame (limited by crank/chainset)To save endless faffing and frustration I'm thinking of replacing with…Continue

I know it's horses for courses. Not literally, of course.My mind has been on what makes a good course lately. It's hard to say in a totally unbiased way, because each rider - at all levels - tends to favour a course that they themselves do well on.Not talking 3 Peaks, Harriers v Cyclists or any sportives here, people - we're talking hour plus one lapSo what's your fave? Here's mine:National Trophy:Peel Park, Bradford. It's a belter. Short climbs, proper forced dismounts, straight, wide tarmac…Continue
I'm looking to buy a CX bike but unsure of what size to be looking for. I'm 5ft 3" and have been told to aim for anything around 48cm. Any advise on this would be great. If anybody is selling any this size, I'm not looking to spend over £500 as just getting into it. Thanks!Continue

Where can you purchase replacement chain rings for cyclocross (by that I mean cyclo-cross sizes (e.g. 46T / 36T)? Maybe it's me but I can't seem to find 46 Tooth (& 36 T) chain rings on any of the major suppliers (Wiggle, CRC etc...)Basically I've got Shimano 105 drivetrain and I'm replacing the cassette & chain and I thought of replacing the chain-rings (which are still the originals). All I can seem to find is the full crankset. It's seems a bit of a waste (and something I want to…Continue
