Going Places

Harry Wardle’s passion and talent for cycling is taking him places – quite literally.  Two wheels are by far his preferred method of transport – be that a road bike or mountain bike – and he’s taken part in competitions in venues as diverse as the velodrome with its aerodynamics and pristine track to the muddier cyclocross where he often has to carry his bike.
His current favourite at the moment is cyclocross, a sport which is really popular in […]
