Project Description

Cassie & Louise

Let’s get acquainted with these CX Characters

Nicknames: Umm maybe Cass? I don’t really have a nickname! So boring!

Age: 31

Occupation: Admin/Payroll at Cycle World and Mother of 2 toddlers and a man child.

How long have you been living in Dunedin?  My whole life apart from a 3 year stint in Blenheim.

Favourite CX course? Either Forrester Park, Cedar Creek or Otago Boys!

Funniest thing you’ve seen at a CX race? Oh there is so many but Logan Edgar’s inappropriate commentary at the first ever Otago Champs race or Gavin Mason doing a full flip over a barrier while still attached to his bike at a CX race in Central are right up there!

Who’s your favourite CX racer this season and why? I’m probably slightly biased but Matt Dunstan! Other than him definitely Andy Toomey, he always looks like he’s having a blast and just makes it look so easy!

What’s the best thing about watching CX? Everyone has their own little races with others in the race but at the end no one really minds too much where they placed; everyone just loves it so much!

Nicknames: Lou, Lousy, Weezie

Occupation: Accountant

How long have you been living in Dunedin?  Off and on my whole life.

Favourite CX course? Whare Flat (Night Race)

Funniest thing you’ve seen at a CX race? Reihanna Haggie getting his gear off on the finish line after every race. The incident known as the S*#% Fight on the Goat Track! (or something like that). Also, Logan Edgers running commentary at the first Otago Champs after a few Emerson’s Beers.

Who’s your favourite CX racer this season and why? They are pretty awesome, but Brian has always been a fav. Every year he surprises us with a new paint job and some quirky costumes. The kids are also pretty awesome.

What’s the best thing about watching CX? All the people you meet, the fun and the laughter. It’s always a fun day. Some of the riders have been there from the start of CX and it’s great to see them every year.
