Ian Taylor: 3rd December 2016: Ian wins World Masters Championships at Mol, Belgium. Ian won the 45-49 year old category. Ian is based in Yorkshire and as new World Champion flies the flag for the team in the National Trophy Cyclo Cross series, consistently high placed overall throughout the season and a regular winner in his local Yorkshire Cyclo Cross league. During the summer Ian has just as much success racing in the local MTB series.
Andy Taylor often flies the flag for the team with big brother Ian in the National Trophy Cyclo Cross series, and is a regular winner in the London Cyclo Cross league. Andy is the 2016 South East & East England Champion, finished 15th in the World Championships, and on the 22nd January 2017 Andy yet again won a London Cyclo Cross league event to clinch overall vicrory and as league series champion. So keen is our Andy that it's not unknown for him to win his 'vets' event, have a quick breather then rock up to the start line and race the senior event.
Adrian Lawrence. Like Ian, Adrian lives ‘up norf’ and focuses on their local Cyclo Cross league in the winter and MTB events for the team during the summer season.
David Harrison has a background in motor sport but for 2016 has swapped four wheels for two; now he's the engine generating the horsepower. David has become a regular competitor in the London Cyclo Cross League and is quickly honing his two wheeled skills.
Simon Scarsbrook. Many may already know of Simon through his superb cycling prints; well worth admiring on scarsbrook-art.com; go on treat yourself to one, you know you want to; I dare say if you live local to the store he could be pursuaded to rendezvous with you here and present it to you personally. He's not only a famous ilustrator and artist with a love of cycling, Simon is also regular competitor in the London Cyclo Cross League in the winter and MTB events during the summer and has finished the famous 3 Peaks Cyclo-Cross 20 times.
Kai Scarsbrook. Inbetween studying to become a Barrister and his duties as a platoon commander in the London Scottish-London Regiment (receiving a Reserve Commission from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 2013) Kai somehow still manages to find the time to compete in Cyclo Cross events. Not just locally, he has also competed in the famous 3 Peaks Cyclo-Cross, staged in the Yorkshire Dales National Park every year at the end of September. According to the promoters "It is the toughest and biggest Cyclo-Cross event in the UK! What else can be said? Great spectacle, unique event – well worth a visit even if you don’t take part"! In the picture above is Kai on the left, with team mate and best dad in the whole world ever, cycling illustrator extraordinaire Simon.
Ian Palfrey bought his Trek Boone in for a service, and before he realised it a certain person had nagged him into submission about racing on it! Now he’s hooked, so well done to Amy..…although naturally she calls it encouragement; not nagging.
Dave Taylor is new to the team for 2016 and another one of the Taylor clan. With a back ground in marathon running Dave has decided to switch sports and try Cyclco cross just to see what brothers Ian and Andy are making all the fuss about; so they had better watch out as there is someone out to get you…
Nick Everington is another who is a welcome new addition to the team for 2016. With a back ground in the challenging world of Iron Man Triathlons during the summer (he needs to expect a certain young triathlete team mate called Amy to bend his ear sometime soon) Nick likes to keep his summer fitness tuned to perfection by riding Cyclo Cross in the winter; he's been a regular competitor for the team in the 2016 London Cyclo Cross league.
Nick Davy has been racing for us for two seasons and is a regular feature at London Cyclo Cross League events with consistent high placings.
Ryan Harris has a background in racing motorbikes and Marathon running with great success in both, a true competitor. Ryan joined the team in 2016 and is a regular feature at London Cyclo Cross League events with consistent high placings. Multi-talented he's also a master craftsman, handcrafting antiques (click for link), so if you need any bespoke furniture made or restored he's your man.
Dan Baines Cycling Weekly journalist and joined the Team in 2017 and made his first outing at London Cyclo Cross on the 22nd January.
Aidan Lawrence joined the Team in 2017 and made his first outing at Great Walstead School in Lindfield in February; he won, convincingly, a real star of the future.
Bryn Lawrence Joined the Team in 2017 and made his first outing at Great Walstead School in Lindfield in February with a magificient top 10 placing, competing against riders much older; like brother Aidan he's definetly a future star.
Mark Taylor. New to the team for 2017 Mark is the youngest of the four Taylor Brothers; so watch out boys, he's after you...
Amy Thomas. Now what can we say about our Amy, it's her first season, she's learning, quickly, very quickly so watch out guys she's catching you up! Look at her lap times, each lap she gets faster and faster and....FASTER....will not be long guys....only a matter of time! When she's not racing our 'little' Amy has the 'biggest' voice and can be heard screaming encouragement supporting the team, so if you can't see her, you will definetly hear her!
Damian rides most of the London Cyclo Cross League events, a former BMX bandit in his pre beard youthful years means that 'Captain Damo' relishes the more technical courses.
