Brooks Sponsored Angus Edmond Reports Back on CX in the UK
9 Dec 2014 | Posted by Angus Edmond | Categories: Bicycles, Correspondence, Events, Friends, Sports Cycling
My trip to England for the UCI Cyclocross World Cup in Milton Keynes, started with me leaving my keys at work (a 15km bike ride each way). But this was ok, because I had a little time up my sleeve and everything was packed and ready to roll. The second hitch came when I took a second look at my boarding pass, and realised I needed to be at the airport 40 minutes earlier than I had thought. This brought on a bout of nausea and caused my hands to shake. To cap it off the airport bus too was late and this was one flight I did not want to miss.

I have ridden bikes all my life, but it didn’t really become an obsession until I moved to Copenhagen from New Zealand. There are no mountains to climb, no rivers to paddle, so I had to figure out what it was that I could do here. Biking became it.

Hardcourt bike polo is a growing sport that is constantly changing. Last year I was flattered and excited when Will and Paul asked me if I would join their team, Call Me Daddy, for the upcoming season.

Cycle sport loves its history. There’s a romance to the historic races that date back to the time when bicycles really were the fastest things on the roads, races that have been contested by the greats of the sport in every generation. But how are new races born, new legends made?

I didn’t think I’d be bothered. A summer of illness with less time on the bike than I’d like, an unhealthy diet of booze and pizza not to mention the odd sneaky cigarette… hell no I didn’t want to race Red Hook Crit! And then with plane tickets and time off work and what not, the race just wasn’t on my calendar.
