Whizz Kids 2016 Yellow Mug Challenge 

Back in October we had the Misterton Madness Cross event at Misterton and the riders who took part received the coveted Yellow Mug seen here.

 

Instead of these beautiful mugs spending their days in the back of the cupboard I have a challenge to Whizz Kids.  During the coming year your challenge is to get a Mugshot with something or someone, peferably cycling related.  It could be a top rider, event or venue, or all three together, the choice is yours.

Over the North Sea to Holland next for Kev Nicholls to take the Yellow Mug around the 235km Fietselfstedentocht - Eleven Towns Tour.  Unfortunately the weather at the end of the ride was awful cold, windy and wet and Kev needed to get warm and dry so there is only a still life taken in the hotel room later in the evening using a soggy Whizz Kids jersey as a backdrop.
