Keep Cross and Clash On – Melbourne Super Cross

We are stirring things up for Melbourne Super Cross 2012 with our Keep Cross and Clash On challenge.

The premise is simple: celebrate cross and give a nod to the ‘race within a race’ that we all know goes on, week in and week out.

For the Rapha Super Cross DDCX event, we’ll be running Keep Cross and Clash On by inciting a Naming of your Nemesis.

You know that fellow racer who just pips you at the line each week, and no matter what you do, you are always within a place or two of this person? For Ben Hegerty, his nemesis is of course Dustin Adderley.

So, Sunday 26th August at Harrison St Velodrome, you can visit the Rapha tent, name your nemesis*, and you’ll be awarded a Kill-Sticker.

Your nemesis is chosen by you.

• The naming of your nemesis does not have to be mutually agreed upon by both parties.
• The spirit of the battle is that it’s a close race; choose appropriately.
• Rapha Kill Stickers are awarded for battling at Rapha Super Cross only.
• If using Twitter or Instagram, use the hashtag #namingmynemesis
