Foreword Dany: ” As I witnessed a magic CX Championship in Armagh last weekend, and promoted by local club Square Wheels CC. We decided to have at least a few interviews with the authors of an immense battle in the Elite Men, this before and after podium presentations and happy that Chris and Sean took so time out, as it was getting cold and they both being knackered after such display of skill and determination in the mud of the Palace Demesne grounds of Armagh. The interviews made it easy for me as these lads are loving the sport and this reflects so well when chatting… it’s like the camera is not there… Here below is what they had to say…

We didn’t have the time to interview Darnell Moore (bronze) but we certainly will have the opportunity in the coming road season
