Kickstarter campaign launched for 2016/17 cyclo-cross album

Follows successful campaign to fund equivalent album last year

Balint Hamvas, who runs cyclo-cross photography website, is hoping to raise £22,000 to fund a coffee table album chronicling the 2016/2017 season. The Kickstarter campaign has so far raised over £7,000 with 23 days remaining.

If successful, the book will guide readers through the cyclo-cross season via 240 pages of high quality photos, plus articles.

A similar campaign last year gave rise to the 2015/16 edition of the book – albeit a little later than intended.

Hamvas, a freelance cycling photographer who has now produced six photo annuals, explains:

“While all my previous books have been finished and shipped by July, last year's book was severely delayed, due to a number of factors that were outside of my control: my computer was stolen, one of the contributors had family emergencies and finally, the new printers delayed the printing by six weeks due to a machine malfunction.

“Clearly I don't want to risk this happening again. So, one thing I've decided to do is to go back to the good old, dependable printing company I have used in the past. Also, I've started working on some of the chapters already so I am confident that I will be able to keep to the deadline this time around.”

You’ll need to pledge £35 or more to get a copy of the album. £40 gets you a copy and a mention in the ‘thank you’ section. £60 gets you the album, a thank you and a limited edition print. You can also get a limited edition print without the album by pledging £10.

If the target isn’t reached, you won’t get charged (and the book won’t happen).

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
