Rounds 3 and 4 of the MTBA national cyclocross series were run by the super professional Fields of Joy CX crew last weekend. The Halkswood Clubgear JM 19 cyclocross team had a handle on the event with Tom Green winning both races and Ben Walkerden securing his first national CX medal with second place in round 4.
Riley Morgan happy to finish after borrowing a bike to give it a crack! completed the races with his skin intact and a whole new appreciation for the sport.
So where to next?
After discussions with Tom we are looking to secure opportunities for his return to the international scene later in the year and already have stated to create the interest that will see him with support for the season. There are a significant few days after Christmas that may be on the agenda for the team in Europe 2015-16.
After Ben gets his head around his first real taste of the national podium we will consider his options with him and look at what the rest of the season has in stall.
Riley when quizzed about his thoughts on cyclocross calmly said ” That was tough” Unfortunately the cantilevers and small block 8’s didn’t really help his days of racing and Halkswood are looking into it.
Well, It’s not really new……
