ShamXross rocks Cycling Plus

Issue 391, May 2022 of the UK's best-selling cycling magazine, Cycling Plus, is out now, and CX at ShamXross steals all the attention!

Editor Matt Baird and photographer Joseph Branston joined us at ShamXross for the last race of the season in the WCCL Round 13, on 30th January 2022.

Matt's 6 page article - plus Editor's intro, and mention on the cover - covers his first ever CX race, what he loved and learnt, and includes lots of great shots of the racing.

"Fun, filthy and friendly?" Yep, we agree!

The article also features BC and Para-Olympic Cycling Coach Heidi Blunden from Parallel Cycle Coaching, who shares her "8 Steps to CX Success". Heidi has been a regular coach at ShamXross, and we plan to host more sessions with her later in the summer - if you've subscribed to this blog, or ShamXross on Facebook or Instagram, you'll see news of those sessions as soon as they go live.

Our amazing compère extraordinaire Jason Veall gets a shout-out too!

There are plenty of shots from the race across the 6 pages; the big question though is which rider is described as "the type of cyclo-cross rider that Matt aspires to be one day, maybe"? Could it be you?! Ah, no spoilers here, you'll have to buy the magazine to find out!

This article is also available online via Magster, here (partially behind a paywall).
