Dirty Deeds CX reveals surge in “Pushy” parents


The great thing for me around these events has been the diversity of participants and the number of kids who just had to be involved.

On Sunday there was young racer on his kick bike who had his mum chasing him the whole way and he just did not want to stop! And you thought it was a long way on 700c wheels.

In one shot it actually looks like mum is trying to take over the bike… a senate committee has been formed to investigate so no result likely anytime soon.

My favorite shot below is of the dad who is either playing the pantomime monster or is sneaking up to steal the bike….

The dedicated dad award must surely go to this man below although there were reported sightings of a cattle prod from within the trailer.

  1. No pantomime monster nor bike theft intentions… I was getting down to her ear level so I could scream at her and hurl encouraging insults. Very serious business, this pushy CX parenting.
    Do you reckon we could list “cyclocross” as her special talent when we start entering her in pageants?
