Mud, sweat and gears

The Raleigh Scottish Cyclocross Series headed to Fife College last Sunday for Round 4 of the hotly-contested national competition.

Conditions were heavy going at Dunfermline with sections of deep mud proving hard work for the riders. Many sections of the course were better suited to running as opposed to pedalling with technical abilities tested to the maximum.

Walkers Cycling Club was well-represented again with a number of club cyclists again trying their hand at a version of the sport which increases in popularity year on year.
