Paul Oldham claimed his third consecutive victory at the Three Peaks Cyclocross race in the Yorkshire Dales on Sunday.
We took a look at Oldham's race-winning Scott Addict CX machine after his victory.
Oldham rides for the Hope Factory Racing team, so it's no surprise to see the company's products adorn his machine.
Most notable is the hydraulic disc brake set-up, which uses Hope levers on the tops as well as SRAM hydraulic brake levers. Stopping power is provided by Hope's RX4 calipers.
The wheels spin on Hope hubs, with Schwalbe G-One cyclocross tyres on the rims. The rubber is an interesting choice, as Schwalbe originally designed the G-One for dry, gravel conditions and so they lack the deeper tread of what is perceived as a traditional 'cross tyre.
The single chainring set-up is based on SRAM Force CX1 with a Hope RX crankset, which uses an 11-speed wide-range cassette.
The frame and fork are stock Addict CX models, which are constructed out of carbon-fibre and have a reputation as being one of the lightest disc-brake specific framesets on the market.
Shimano XTR SPD pedals, Hope seat post, Deda stem and Ritchey bars complete the race-winning package.
Oldham has taped on a CO2 tube inflator to the back of the seatpost, with a spare CO2 cartridge wrapped in lagging and taped to the underside of the stem.
The bike's top tube features a sticker bearing the legend "In loving memory. #RideForCharlie" to remember Charlie Craig, the promising young cyclocross star who died in January.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
