Few pics and clips from HELCX cyclocross race in Lahti. Great cycling event in a new town for HELCX organisation. Race was liked by the locals and widely covered by the media. Etelä-Suomen Sanomat news paper wrote few features about this race, pre and post race. https://www.ess.fi/urheilu/Urheilu/art2499466
Hiekkatieralli is a must if you're into spring classics and cyclocross. Just a fistful of riders and guaranteed bad weather are the main building blocks of this future classic. Plenty of elevation too that proved to be too much for Team Breakaway since we were dropped in mid race at yet another short and steep hill. This race is a perfect combination of road and gravel racing.
