Our friends in cycling apparel and design MorvÃƒÂ©lo launch CityCross this Sunday. We’ll be there at the Vulpine Corner, a tight squeeze challenge of raucous madness that each rider must brave…
Ever since they produced their popular urban cross race film, ‘Ride Everything’, they’ve been determined to host a race that captures that same spirit. Finally that moment has come to fruition with Morvelo CityCross, a unique style of cyclocross, which they’ve decided to ramp up to 11.
Set in Old Shroggs, an old city tip in central Halifax, riders ride any kind of bike they like round the course. We’re talking manmade obstacles here, with mud, water, sand… COBBLES. Mix this with a city location and the traditional cyclocross party that is beer tents, cowbells and a course-side party atmosphere and you get a totally different race format. It will be weird and hellish hard. But most of all, FUN.
We are excited to be part of an innovative new racing format in the UK. We’ll be right there at the Vulpine Corner, a tight squeeze challenge of raucous madness that each rider MUST brave.
Riders taking on our corner will come up against the Vulpine Urban Foxes, ravaging though the bins & creating a hailstorm of marshmallows and cabbage grimness to be chucked at the innocents. The Urban Foxes will be savaging rubber chickens, banging bin lids and generally annoying the residents.
The incredible clattering of metal bins being banged together will be IMMENSE. And the mauling of chickens*… OH THE MADNESS. When those pesky Foxes are not raising hell, they’ll also be on hand with a selection of Vulpine Cycling Apparel for Ride & Destination which will be available to buy and have a good feel of.
Entries are still open for Morvelo CityCross, and they have categories for all no matter what your ability, age or gender. From Under 12 racing to Youth and Junior rippers. They also have a women’s only race and novice race to sit alongside the usual vets and senior racing. Check out www.citycross.co.uk to enter.
Bring on the trashing of bikes. Come and throw some things at humans already on the edge. See you in Halifax.
*No chickens will be harmed in the making of our corner.*
