You've got to hand it too them. Freezing cold...been raining for days...mud everywhere... The girls and boys, women and men of the cycling world gather come rain or shine for the winter cyclocross series. It's a long, long way from the sun drenched Avenue des Champs-Élysées in July!

Thanks to all who, at the end of the gruelling races, stood in the cold for my camera.

Chapeau to you all!
