Cyclocross – Race Three
August 7 – 9:00 am – 2:00 pm NZST
Cyclocross is back for 2022 – Round three is at Cable Bay. This will be the final round for 2022 with overall prize giving for MTB and CX afterwards, spot prizes and some food.
With the ongoing wet weather Tahunanui Holiday Park have made the decision not to host a round this year.
NMTBC’s CX Series is focused on fun and friendly competition. We encourage new riders to CX racing through this series.
Similar to XC, Cyclocross (CX) sees riders completing laps of a mixed terrain/obstacle course. There is a time limit usually between 40 minutes to an hour, and the person to complete the most laps in that time is the winner! Obstacles can include trails, roads, paddocks, fences, trees, horse jumps, steps, whatever else the organiser can think of! And yes, you must take your bike with you through and over all of these things! Fancy dress is often donned, and kids races are commonly a part of the Nelson CX scene.
