Cyclocross Series – Race Three
July 16 – 9:00 am – 1:00 pm NZST
Venue: Rabbit Island on Sunday 16th July
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.
Round three – Rabbit Island. 16 July
Round four – Cable Bay Adventure Park. 30th July
