We’re entering the summer holiday period and, as we did last season, we will be running a number of “Crit-Cross” races over the next few weeks. Crit-Cross is basically Cyclo-Cross style racing (tight corners, changes of direction) on tarmac. We will mark out a course on the tarmac cycle circuit using cones and tapes.
We will use the club’s electronic timing system and every event will include at least 2 races for every rider. Race duration will be in the region of 5-10 mins. We’ll be relying on a few volunteers to help us with the sign-on process and tidying up after the events – please help if you can.
There will be a small session charge for all riders.
Monday Fun Crit Cross – aimed at our adult members only (16 and over) of all abilities. We’ll split you on the night according to gender and/or ability. We’ll also allow you time to practice the course. The aim being to give you a fun taste of racing without the pressures and numbers you’ll find in an open circuit or Cyclo-Cross race.
Thursday Club Crit Cross – open to all club members of all abilities. We’ll probably run races split into Under-14 and Over-14, with shorter under-10 races if there is a demand.
