Manchester Wheelers Cyclo Cross Races

Sunday 5 October 2014

Cyclo-Cross is a great introduction to competitive cycling, and great if you like getting muddy. Mick Style was the winner of the North West Vets League this year and is a great person to talk to about Cyclo-Cross. He has written a guide below to get you started.
 
The laps are short, and Senior races usually last an hour. It's also a great sport to get children involved in cycling, as there are separate shorter races for under 12s and under 16s.
 
Cyclo-Cross is great winter conditioning, and great for bike handling. You may have to dismount/re-mount a few times per lap. A Cyclo-Cross bike is not essential to take part, it is possible to enter with a mountain bike.
