Winning ways & World Cup representation
Written by Velo Staff on 23rd January 2017
A successful weekend was had by our 2 cyclocross riders- master rider Rob Purcell was representing in the UK at the final round of the Eastern League while Jeremy Durrin was racing the final round of the UCI world cup series in Hoogerheide, NL.
Rob rounded out his season in style taking the WIN in the final round of the Eastern league and also winning the overall series. Rob has had a successful season with many wins and has also been competing in the national trophy series.
Meanwhile in the Netherlands Jeremy Durrin competed in the final round of the world cup series.
Here is what he had to say:
”Super fast racing yesterday at the Hoogerheide World Cup.
I had a great start from the 5th row, and moved up to the low 30’s. But the speed also lead to some crashing. And I went down at the end of lap two which had me chasing to get back to the second group.
But I settled into a group with some fellow Americans and raced a consistent race. Not happy with my placing, 49th but I am now looking forward to more next weekend at World Championships in Luxembourg.”
