Last year, mountain bike trials ninja Chris Akrigg took the Mongoose Selous for a spin in the woods, and in doing so he pushed the hybrid sport of cyclocross to the next level. Well, he’s back and pushing the boundary even further. From shredding down paths that a hardtail would slide about on, river runs and crazy bunny hops, this sequel is brimming with action.
Here’s what Chris had to say about CHRISCROSS 2:
Well, here we go again, the second instalment of riding the bike with the curly whirly bars and skinny tyres.
We are currently at the height of the Cyclocross season so i thought it was about time i dug the cyclocross bike out for another spin. I read somewhere that Cyclocross originated for roadies back in the day trying to spice up their winter training. They would race from point to point using whatever means possible, racing down farm track and running across fields with the bike on there back etc.
That was their spin. My background is Trials, and this is my spin!
