Zdenek Stybar Is 2014 Uci World Champ
From deciding to race Cyclocross Worlds a little more than a week ago, to kissing his Specialized Crux at the finish line as the new 2014 UCI Cyclocross World Champion. Just another day at the races for Zdenek Stybar.
What started out as a decision to race for fun quickly turned into one of the more exciting cyclocross battles in recent memory. Starting from the fourth row behind the juggernauts of the sport, Zdenek fought tooth and nail to quickly make his way through the mid-pack traffic. The race came down to an exhilarating last-lap duel between Zdenek, and defending World Champion Sven Nys of Trek. The two men traded attacks, and spills, as they battled for supremacy in the grueling mud, whilst in the Women's race, Marianne Vos simply rode her Giant Advanced 'cross bike away from the competition.
Watch the race on the UCI You Tube Channel.

Ellie Russell National Championship Bronze
It was great to see one of the Mid Shropshire Wheelers Junior Team get onto the podium at the 2014 British Cycling National Cyclo Cross Championships at Derby.
Shrewsburys Ellie Russell has made giant leaps this season and led out at the start only to come unstuck on a technical section but on her Specialized bike she showed the grit of a champion to chase back through the field before taking bronze on the final lap.
Watch this girl go in 2014 as well as the rest of our Junior Team sponsored riders.

Podium In Australia For Luke Grivell-mellor
A blatant plug for our son Luke who took off from Shrewsbury and travelled to Australia in early November to train and race in the Victoria university town of Bendigo.
Luke who rides professionally for the Rapha - Condor - JLT cycling team joined an advance party of team mates to begin their 2014 season early with some solid training and then racing the Mitchelton Bay Criterium series over the New Year.
Team mate Ed Laverack took overall honours with Luke in third place overall and Felix English taking the King of the Sprints Crown. Next stop for Luke is the New Zealand Cycle Classic stage race which starts on the 29th January.
Not bad for a Shropshire lad who started racing at the Mid Shropshire Wheelers kids club on his Giant bike at the Shrewsbury Sports Village. Luke has taken part in all aspects of cycling but is now Specialized as a road racer.
