Spring & Autumn Races
HOW TO ENTER
This event is currently PRE-ENTRY ONLY
Getting back to our roots, we'll be running two Autumn Classic XC race events this Autumn on Sunday 24 October and Sunday 14 November. We'll confirm the venues soon. There will be categories for riders of all ages and abilities from age 8+ on a classic course at our all-weather venues. The events will be run according to the Government Coronavirus and BC guidelines current at that time.
Expect a friendly, well organised event with a 4 mile, prepped course with enough overtaking places to ensure highly enjoyable racing. There'll be trophies and prizes presented on the podium plus spot prizes to be won. The arenas will have full facilities including quality catering and toilets and will be very spectator friendly.
