‘Cross’ keeps creeping into the summer months. Some leap in, shedding bibs and jerseys for skinsuits, longer lunch rides for ‘openers’. We’re well into the established season now, though, and as the last leaf falls on the real road season and the days shorten there is no denying it: it’s time for our full attention to shift to cyclocross. We packed up Tillie, our mobile cycle club in the United States, at the Worlds in Virginia and have sent her and a guest barista on the road to the cross races this season. Gloucester has come and gone and up next is and Cincinnati on 31 October – 1 November, Northampton on 7 – 8 November, New York on 14 November, then the national championships in North Carolina on 9 – 10 January.
