The beard is not a popular facial accoutrement in the world in cycling, which in my mind is a shame and something I am attempting to at least partially rectify with my own attempt at hirsuitedness. Being fair it's only now, after six weeks of avoiding the Gillette Mach 3 that it's beginning to show up on the photographic radar. I've got a long way to go, but if I can get something like Sean Eadie, Belov from American Flyers or even the late, great Sheldon Brown going by the summer I would be a happy man.
The photo above id from yesterday's cross race at Wilmington School in Kent. I did ok, not great. Ninth place is my worst result of the season, but it was a good field so not unexpected.
