Incredibly Cross by Sunday Echappée
Are we drawing deeper into winter or getting closer to spring? It’s hard to tell here in London at the moment, cold snaps followed by periods warm enough to trick some trees into blossoming, followed by further cold snaps. One thing is for sure though, cross season is drawing to an end. The team champs on the 7th of February marks the end of the ‘official’ cross calendar here and many riders have already started to think about the coming road season. With the classics on the horizon, who can blame them! Following the success of the past two outings and a bit of lull over Christmas we felt as though Incredibly Cross deserved one more outing to finish things off for the winter. It was certainly a wintery weekend as well, despite the forecast rain holding off it was bitterly cold resulting in a slightly diminished field compared to Round 3. The racers were none-the-less enthusiastic though, with one even arriving last minute having rushed over from a 10k charity run dressed as a giraffe.
