Event website: Ouseburn Trust
Summary: The only event of its kind in the country and a totally unique urban cyclo-cross. The Ouseburn Valley Cross is a full day of racing on closed roads, cobbled streets and wooded footpaths for all ages in a truly unique urban setting.
The 1.25 mile course contains fully barriered closed streets, wooded footpaths, parkland, and cobbled climbs under three iconic bridges through the Ouseburn Valley in the heart of Newcastle.
Enter for the chance to race the most iconic CX race this year, with great spot prizes and podium prizes supplied by local businesses. Parking will be available next to the CycleHub on the quayside and the Ouseburn Riverside path will be open to provide access to central Ouseburn.
Registration will take place in McFees car park on the opposite side of the river to the Ouseburn Farm and the Cluny where there will be public toilets, bike and food stalls and Rollapaluza.
The start finish straight will house the race commentary by John Davidson with real time results delivered by chip timing and a pop-up grandstand cafe courtesy of Ouseburn Coffee.
