After a long cyclo-cross hiatus we had a 'cross event uninterrupted by extreme weather or apocalyptic bushfire smoke, and we returned to the ever-changing John E Brown Park in North Adelaide. What was a mudfest for us in September was a delightfully changing dusty short course with myriad different corner grips and geometry that took advantage of some of the park's mulchy, grassy and dusty features. There were some spectacular starts and finishes across all grades with over 100 riders enjoying mild but sunny conditions.
After a season interrupted by an unscheduled cruise ship, a crash and some mixed up weather, the final round of the 2019-20 Zero Friction Time Trial went to plan on Sunday morning.
The rain cleared up like the forecast said, for a mild morning at Outer Harbor this morning with winds getting stronger as the race progressed.
