Yesterday afternoon saw about 20 keen or curious cyclists try their skills at velocross at Wanganui's Cooks Gardens velodrome. They discovered that velocross was a mixture of track cycling and BMX, with all the challenges of speed, jumping and manoeuvring around obstacles. The course was a mixture of racing around the velodrome on the boards and navigating obstacles in the centre, with an optional jump. Full story on page 35. Wanganui Chronicle photographer Bevan Conley took these photographs.
