A photo report of yesterday CX in Portadown, when you don’t recognise the rider because he or she is covered in sticky mud, you know a real cyclo-cross has taken place…A great course designed and built by James Wilson (landowner and Apollo CT member cyclist) a progressive club as the promoter, riders coming to the race as far as Dublin and Donegal and big nrs in all categories bringing hundreds of people to the event, yep…a magic day in the countryside of Portadown…well done Apollo CT, it was a pleasure to be involved yesterday with our media team. A link to our Flickr page with action photos will be online sometime today, the provisional results on this link and full race report of Martin Grimley on
