Another huge name in 'cross in my mini-series of interviews, Barry Davies was the first ever person to take three consecutive wins in the event. Showing the type of domination seen in his 60s predecessor Harry Bond and contemporary John Atkins, Barry was someone well-suited to the hardest of 'cross races.
I started by asking Barry which of his 3 wins ('73, '74, and…

Following the Eric Stone interview published yesterday, a second in a series of interviews with some utter legends of cyclocross in general, and the 3 Peaks in particular. Tim Gould was the first to take Eric's record and better it - winning six events and being the first man to do that. I shared a brief chat with Tim after the race this year when he and I were done. That was followed by a few emails and eventually this interview... We had a bit of a battle, passing…Continue
Eric Stone was the first person to win the 3 Peaks Cyclocross five times. An emigrant to the warmer climes of Australis for the last 30 years, Eric was able to visit the race again in 2014 – sadly being brought back to the UK to help family during a bereavement. I had a rare opportunity to catch up with this legend of the 3 Peaks before he left the Yorkshire autumn behind, to chat about the race.
Riding as an amateur in his…Continue

Hi all,having moved to a new and more spacious place I finally have room for a second bike. I've already got a mountain bike and am looking for another one to commute to work. Innitially I was going to go back to a road bike, as I used to have one a couple of years ago, but then found out about the CX bikes.I have been looking around and decided to go with the Giant TCX. Now, I'm not sure which one I should go for.The TCX 2 seems very good value for money (£1049):…Continue
Hi, I wonder if anyone could offer advice?I am utterly fresh meat to Cyclocross…i.e. not even bough my first bike yet but itching to get out there and get going! My budget is pretty conservative at only £1k…ish but I do want to get a reasonable spec for my money. After days, nay weeks of reading, searching and drooling over images of crossers, I keep gravitating back to Pearsons' 'Rough With The Smooth'. As a designer I am a little guilty of leaning towards 'form' over 'function' and in that…Continue

I’m going to enter myself and my son in this summer’s Ridley Western League and while I’m happy to stick with my Sora CAADX (it’s the weight on me that’s the problem, not the bike), he’s lighter than me and, being a young-un (14 this year), has less stamina (at the moment!!), so weight is the critical factor in my way of thinking… I’m also in the fortunate position of being able to sort a new bike for Louis (with some help from his gran)… he's also heading towards six foot at a suprising speed,…Continue
