It's been 33 years since I last attended a cyclo-cross race; that was in Dublin's Phoenix Park, and if my memory is correct, Julian Dalby took the win that day. Back then the sport of cyclo-cross didn't have much of a following in Ireland, but things have certainly changed since 1986.
Out of pure curiosity I travelled to Killruddery yesterday, where Bray Wheelers hosted the third round of The Leinster League of Cyclo-Cross. A wonderful spectator sport that has to be one of cycling's most grueling of disciplines. Here is a small collection of photographs which I captured on the day.
