Skinny tyres, mud, short, sharp off-road races, with hurdles, obstacles and intense action. That’s cyclo-cross, with racing for everyone from young kids to grandparents, which takes place throughout the autumn and winter.

Cyclo-cross takes place in off-road venues such as public parks and other open spaces. Surfaces can include grass, mud, gravel and sand. Courses are short and winding, enabling multiple laps to be completed within a set distance. Courses often feature obstacles such as hurdles and sand pits, forcing riders to dismount and carry or run with their bikes. Some courses are more ‘technical’ than others, featuring tight single-track trails, tree roots and other obstacles.

At a local level, cyclo-cross races are multi-lap events usually lasting for an hour for senior riders, with shorter distances for other categories. At the end of the set time, a bell is rung signifying the last lap, known as the ‘bell lap’. Racing seldom sees large bunches forming due to the nature of the terrain, with groups of two or three riders forming at the most. Cyclo-cross is often a personal battle between the rider and the course, making it engaging for riders of all abilities. There’s no ‘getting dropped from the bunch’ in cyclo-cross.

2021 – Series Results

That was a totally different season to the 2019 one, with the rain staying away till the last few races. There were a few new venues, new courses at old ones and both our riders had moved up an age category. Again, both their physical and technical prowess was tested to the limit, due the the longer courses and increased time racing. It was great to see them utilising their skills gained from our sessions and being true ambassadors for SRC. Well done to the both of you on a really tough season, having done no real racing or much in the way of being coached due to the pandemic.

2020

Unfortunately, due to the continuing Covid-19 pandemic, there were no races scheduled or took place this year. Fingers crossed that normal service will resume in 2021

2019 – Series Results

What a really wet, muddy and tough season for our three SRC representatives, over some demanding courses even before the rain made them even more so. Both their physical and technical prowess was tested to the limit and it was great to see them utilising their skills gained from our sessions. Well done to the three of you on a really tough season.
