It may be September, it may be warm, but the cyclo cross season has cranked it up to 11 already!
Las Vegas saw the opening of the cyclo cross season. In searing heat Ian got the year off to a great start coming home in 24th place; however the best was still to come! After a small hop to Iowa City Fieldy lined up for round 2 of the World Cup, the Jingle Cross’, and then went on to make British Male cyclo cross history!
Unlike Vegas, mud greeted the riders with a course very similar to Milton Keynes, we all remember what happened there don’t we! After a chaotic start the race settled with Ian progressing through the field picking off riders all the time as they fell from the scorching pace up front. Ian came home in 11th place, the best male result in British history; this bettered his 12th place in Milton Keynes and showed that Ian has come into the season in incredible form. Ian now sits 16th in the World Cup overall.
The following day Ian finished 16th in the C1 event on the same course to round up his extremely successful trip across the pond! Next up for Ian is National Trophy series round 1 in Derby - Watch this space for more post race info as we eagerly await the debrief from the man himself, Ian Field!
Harry Yates, who took home 3 wins on the bounce has also had a fantastic start to the season. Harry is a Junior but has proceeded to destroy every senior field he has been pitched against.
Nick Barnes sprinted to the win in round 2 of the Yorkshire points series.

The Lazer Track-Air helmet is designed to be fast and agile. It follows all principles of aerodynamics, but features a shorter tail to allow head movement with minimal effect on the drag coefficient.
A small and narrow front area is combined with a trip wire on top of the helmet and a stubby tail at the rear. This creates a compact helmet that allows riders to look around without disturbing their aerodynamic performance too much.
The sides of the helmet shell are aerodynamically curved to cover the ears, thus reducing wind resistance.
The Track-Air features a deep screen visor that is aerodynamic and gives perfect visual clarity. This visor can also move forward to provide two
ventilation ports that create airflow through the helmet.

Revolution FF is designed with Enduro in mind.
The helmet is engineered to provide maximum coverage, whilst being lightweight (705g) with a cooling efficiency (23 vents) that can’t be beat.
Featuring an adjustable visor that allows for easy goggle parking on the helmet, the ATS retention system for a secure and comfortable fit as well, as interchangeable ear pads.
It’s an ASTM certified full-face helmet with a removable chin guard, leaving you with the option of turning it into a trail riding helmet. Furthermore it features
the SMS (safety mounting system) for cameras and accessories.
This system has been fully-crash tested with a camera installed, and passes all tests. To cap if off, the helmet has unique looks that are certain to draw attention on the trails.
Built for Triathlon!
The Tardiz2 is the modern interpretation of the classic Lazer triathlon helmet. It’s still built around the same values: aerodynamics and ventilation.
The narrow droplike shape and narrow frontal area provide the most aerodynamic shape, while the dimpled rear surface helps traps air pockets to improve the airflow over and around the helmet.
Everything combined creates a helmet that will get you to the finish line faster! Comfort is not compromised and the Tardiz2 is still perfect for many hours in the saddle.
It features the ATS fit system for comfortable size adjustments, the Aquavent for instant cooling and an open front area that is eyewear friendly. The Aquavent is a hydration port on the top of the helmet that is easily accessible. Just use your water bottle to squirt water through a spring loaded port, directly onto the head, for instant cooling.
No matter how hot it gets, the Tardiz2 will keep you cool and performing at top level. When additional aerodynamic performance is required, the Aquavent can also be replaced with a closed off version.
The Armor Pin is the next step in urban safety for 2017! Based on the Armor helmet, it features a unique and comfortable head shape combined with the Advanced Turnfit System for a secure fit.
And to keep you cool is has channelled ventilation with a chimney effect to allow heat to escape. But the real advantages are the In-Molded push pins which allow accessories or a screen visor to be installed.
Just push on accessories to add style, protection or fun!
