If you had heard already, VeloCake is a team of winners. At least in North Yorkshire.
Jon Bateman WON a cross race, yes won! Jon was aided to victory by team mate Tom Levell who didn't win despite finishing ahead in the race.

Also "racing" last weekend at the Bristol Oktoberfest, Simon Barnes romped home in 10th place, even though he only completed two laps and getting held up in the singletrack by fellow VeloCaker. Pete Watt. Pete did extremely well to stay upright and not repeat his previous race outing where he had a nasty connection with his stem and required ice packs from the St.John's ambulance folks.
Full race action reports and photogs to follow, I'm sure.
Below is a trailer for a sooner to be released film about Cyclocross. It's rather beautifully shot by film maker Benedict Campbell, I like it rather much, if you've not seen it, it's well worth 4 minutes 26 or whatever of you time.
