Cyclo-cross National Series Round Five Preview

The Cyclo-cross and festive seasons collide on December 30th as the Cyclo-cross National Series continues with Round Five at McCrystals Track, Jenkinstown.

Hosted by Bellurgan Wheelers, the series returns for the penultimate round as attention switches to next month's Cyclo-cross National Championships and the end of the season.
