Sunday 7 October 2018 is now an important date in the history of Irish Cyclo-cross as this was when the first UCI C2 race took place. The idea came from a discussion between event organiser Glenn Kinning and Andy Layhe (the cyclo-cross representative on the Cycling Ireland Off-road Commission), when returning from the World Cyclo-cross Championships at the start of 2018.
The Enduro World Series (EWS) at Aínsa, Spain was a tough two days battling with temperatures as high as 35C! I had a bit of trouble keeping pressure in my rear wheel on Day 1 but I trucked on and got it patched up for the final two stages of the day. I headed into Day 2 with the ambition of taking a stage win and that I did. I was happy to finish up in P2 after a challenging two days.
