Victoria’s big cyclocross titles* wrapped up for 2013 on Saturday with almost 60 adults contesting the Victorian Cyclo-Cross Championships on a new course at Frankston BMX track, following on from healthy fields in the schools titles.
Long straights, bmx bumps and berms and the obligatory barriers made for a fun course suited to cx, while a small patch of mud ensured everyone would be washing machines later. And the wind, dust and motorbike racing next door added a special kind of zen.
Some bumpy stretches and transitions claimed a few tyres, with Nik Cee, Jenny Macpherson and others visiting the pits while in the mix.
Congrats to class winners April McDonough (elite women), Maartje Munsterman (masters women), Paul Redenbach (elite men), Jason Butler (masters 1-2 men), Cam Woolcock (masters 3 men), and John Czechowski (masters 4-6 men).
Results at Cycling Victoria.
