Women and Men CX grades are CX bike only categories – ie drop bars and rigid forks. A grade CX 35 mm tyre width maximum, B grade CX any tyre width. Open and Junior categories – bring any (safe) bike.
Sunset on 27 March is 6.57 pm. Under our sanctioning, CX Women A and CX Men A will be required to have lights.
CX races – separate categories for men and women, separate start waves. MTB is combined.
If you are unsure of the correct grading, here’s a very loose guideline:- If you race A or B grade on the road, enter A Grade- If you race C or D grade on the road, enter B Grade.- If it’s your first ever cyclocross or mtb race and you have absolutely no idea what to expect, then jump into B and hang at the back to watch and learn the style of racing.- If you are U15 or U17 and just so happen to be super speedy, perhaps moving up to B grade is a good idea.
