Five races throughout the year became a test of skill, fitness and determination for some of Singapore’s best off-road cyclists. Here’s what they had to say about the Series.
“Overall I thought the series was a good success and the course got better and better with each race. Hopefully we can get a few more ‘cross riders to come and join in next year as there is a growing number of people riding cyclocross bikes in Singapore so we will have to work harder to encourage them to come down and try out the Jungle Cross course.” – Tim Clarsen, winner of Cycocross Overall Series Title, 2016.
“It was just a fantastic year, with great participation by all the clubs, including a lot of smaller clubs coming in. And we had new categories popping up throughout the series as people became aware of the Jungle Cross concept. The course is very unique to Singapore, and I think we can do a lot more with it next year, so we’re very excited about what we can do in 2017,” – Kent McCallum, Series Organiser.
“It was a very muddy course, very slippery, but I think that will help people get their bike handing skills better. I’m very appreciative of what Kent (McCallum) and Cycosports are doing with Jungle Cross.” – Junaidi bin Hashim, winner of Elite Mountain Bike Overall Series Title, 2016.
