Revell & Edmond Land First Ever NZ UCI CX Points
26 Nov, 2012

New Zealand picked up its first ever UCI Cyclocross World Cup points on the weekend at the Koksijde World Cup in Belgium.

BikeNZ riders Alex “Zander” Revell and Angus Edmond both scraped inside the top 50 finishers of the elite men at the internationally renowned event to claim their places on the UCI Cyclocross points table.

Wellington’s Revell has shown tremendous improvement since arriving in Belgium as an unknown moustache-bearing foreigner just months ago, and despite still finishing four laps down on eventual winner Sven Nys (BEL), made another step in the right direction with this performance.

“The momentum has continued to grow in equal measure to the experience and form I am gaining,” said Revell, who finished second at the first official New Zealand Cyclocross Championships in Hawke’s Bay earlier this year.

“It has been the most surreal experience, going from the humble but passionate grassroots scene in New Zealand to the big time on the world stage with a nation of people whose life really is cyclocross.”

Edmond finished one further lap behind Revell and lone Australian Lewis Rattray in the battle of the Southern Hemisphere trio.

The next UCI Cyclocross World Cup event will take place on December 2 in Roubaix, France.
