|About||Summer Cross comes to Warwick! The Steeplechase Summer CX race is now part of the West Midlands Summer Cross Series.|
On the 2nd of July 2015 a little bit of Warwick will become a little bit Belgian as Summer Cyclocross arrives to introduce the inhabitants of South Warwickshire to the lung burning, grin-inducing discipline of Cyclocross. The Steeplechase is now part of the West Midlands Summer Cross League (https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events?series_id=435) and is rounds 2 and 4 (held on the 2nd and 30th of July 2015).
Warwick is normally associated with steeplechasing horses but on this evening it will be the cross riders doing the steeplechasing and the air will be ringing to the sound of cowbells and brake blocks rather than stirrups and hooves.
This event is intended to provide an introduction to Cyclocross but without the wind, rain and cold but as this is Britain we cannot guarantee anything on the weather front. This event is open to cross bikes and mountain bikes although MTB riders will find themselves at a disadvantage on parts of the course.
There will be a junior race (~15 minutes, prizes for each age category) and a senior race (~50 minutes, ladies and gents from 18+). There will be separate prize categories within the senior race so there will be plenty to race for.
Cyclocross is the ultimate cycling spectator sport so please bring your supporters with you!
