Holmfirth CC Summer of Cycling Novice Cyclocross Races
Promoted by: Holmfirth Cycling Club
Summary: To ride this event you don’t need to be a budding Sven Nys, anyone who fancies a go at ‘cross can just turn up and enjoy it! The course will be run on grass playing fields with the addition of a short woodland area for the under 12 race upwards. Expect lots of twists and turns and the Spiral of Doom to test your bike handling skills. Under 8/10 riders will be on a shorter course which doesn’t take in the woodland – parents will be encouraged to push where necessary!
Suitable for all bikes although off road tyres will be preferable for better grip, mountain bikes are great but please remove any cow catcher bar ends.
As this is a novice (fun) event there will be no chip timing, but club officials will record results for each race – please allow them time to compile the results which will be announced as soon as possible after each race. Medals for top 3 riders in each race and certificates for all finishers.
A great introduction to the sport ahead of the winter series, come along and give it a try. Following the racing there will be an informal BBQ – bring (and cook) your own food!
