South West CX Series (Newquay – 8/10/17)

For the first time Scuderia RT had more than one entrant into a cyclo-cross race. Nick Blight took to the start line as he has done all year and was followed in by Adrian Prust. Adrian was competing in his first cross event, after what has been a fairly successful season on the road in crit racing after only taking delivery of a new bike on the Thursday.

Neither rider having been seeded, Nick got about picking riders off one by one and steadily moved through the pack throughout the race as Adrian came to terms with the demands of cross racing. An hour at full gas isn’t easy at the best of times but having to slow down and speed up rapidly through riders and tight corners does make for one of the harder turbo sessions of the year. Come the end Nick had picked off most of the riders ahead of him and finished a very respectable 6th, picking up BC points in the process. Adrian was a mid-pack finisher having enjoyed the first taste of the mud and wanting to go and challenge for more. (Photos below credited to http://www.iwantoneofme.com and Kylie Blight)
