Summer CX Race Series – Race 1
May 9 @ 6:15 pm – 9:00 pm
Cyclo-cross is one of the most accessible forms of cycle sport with racing for everyone from young kids to grandparents. Throughout the autumn and winter, it’s probably taking place in a park near you.
This race is as grass roots as it gets think jumpers for goal posts in the park and as such provides a great opportunity for members to try out CX for the first time, try out new race strategies or sharpen their race craft ahead of the CX season. It’s a great opportunity for Clarion riders to use the event to test their fitness/ tune up in summer.
This event is designed to be for all and as such you can ride MTB, CX bike or even a gravel bike. The only stipulation is no E-bikes, no panniers or mudguards, basically anything that might cause injury to other riders.
The races is open to all current first and second claim members and it is for all from novice to experienced riders.
We will need volunteers on the night, including lap counters, marshals and sign on, no volunteers no race.
For our youths to allow them to prepare for the coming cyclocross season they will race the categories they will race from 1st September – ie a current second year youth C ( born 2010) will race in Youth B
Mondays are very busy for the leisure centre, with football, and regular users of the facilities making it pretty congested. We will be an extra activity on top of what is already going on.
Therefore riders where possible will need to arrive on bike if there is no space in the car park they will need to park elsewhere.
Spond Invites will be issued for Youth Riders and Adults can sign up HERE…..
Entries will close at LUNCHTIME on MONDAY 9th May
