Joe Moses, Three Peaks Cyclo Cross 2014
Joe Moses avoided a major crash and injury during the Three Peaks Cyclo Cross race after his steerer tube snapped on Pen-y-ghent.
Amazingly, the Paul Milnes Cycles rider kept his bike under control and came to a halt by a dry-stone wall. Moses changed his bike and went on to place third overall behind winner Rob Jebb and take the under-23 victory.
