If you'd like to sponsor a theme night or a shortcut, or provide prizes that we will distribute on a basis worse than random, please contact us at

If you are selected as a sponsor, you will receive valuable marketing exposure in our weekly newsletter and online promotions, as well as word-of-mouth marketing and probably several other very important sorts of things like blogs or lists of "people we think are hot" and stuff like that, and your prestige will go up lots and lots.


Cyclocross components
Traditional cantilever brakes are preferred to V-brakes, to prevent clogging with mud. Wheels are of the normal road racing type fitted with knobbie tires andlower gearing.

There are also slight geometry differences between the two; cyclo-cross bikes tend to have slightly higher handlebars for a more upright position as aerodynamics have little importance in a cross race. A second set of brake levers on the tops, called top mount brake levers, are favored by some competitors. In general, with a change of tires and gearing a cyclo-cross bike can double as a perfectly adequate road racing machine.

However, most cyclo-cross racers prefer clipless mountain bike pedals for their easy dual-sided entry and mud-shedding abilities. Also, the mountain bike shoes used with them provide better traction whilst running than a typical road style shoe thanks to grip and flexibility in the sole. -from Wikipedia
