Shrewsbury is set to host the 2016 National Cyclocross Championships on 9-10th January. Riders from under 14 to Veteran get ready to descend on the Shrewsbury Sports Village for 2 days of action in 19 separate age and gender related National Titles.
Our sponsored riders, Grant Ferguson and Davie Lines will be taking the battle "down south". Grant has already won the 2015 Scottish Title with Davie coming second.
Grant is the British Cycling Olympic Podium Programme cross-country mountain biker and he is in the Elite field for the first time this year. He is 3-times under-23 Champion and has had a career best season on the MTB, with world cup gold, European championships silver and World Championship bronze to his name.
He's been racing on 2 sets of Aero38 Disc (Tubular) with Wheelsmith hubs and 24/24 CX-Rays and custom Wheelsmith FMB SuperMud tubulars. He also trains on 2 pairs of Race24 Disc in 24/24 hole with CX-Rays. These get used on the MTB too as the hubs can be changed from q/r to 15mm/12mm x 142mm in a jiffy.
Davie Lines rides 2 pairs of Aero50 Disc (Tubular) with Wheelsmith hubs and CX-Rays. His were an experimental set with a 20 hole front wheel. 3 seasons in and with some mental high-flying antics - and they are without a single re-true despite some heavy scrapes and gouges in the rims! We are as amazed as anyone else!
We will be glued to the live-feeds on both days and wish everyone on Wheelsmith Wheels the very best of luck!
