Cyclocross Race from 1950

This video is old school. All the racers are wearing sweet wool jerseys… not a stitch of spandex to be seen. Cyclocross is supposed to have obstacles, but at one point these racers are wading chest deep in a river holding their bikes over their heads. The narrator cracks me up. I thought his accent sounded a bit like my Dad’s accent, and it turns out the race took place just an hours drive over the border from his hometown in Scotland in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England.
