Nelson XC is built around fun, challenge, and encouraging riders of all ages and disciplines to give it a go. There will normally be an easy course and a more challenging course on the menu to ensure all abilities are catered for. It is pretty fun trying to cut off your friends or pip them at the finish line!

Cross Country (XC) racing is a challenging and fun format that requires mental fortitude, technical riding prowess and fitness! XC is a set number of laps of a course, which can include roads, trails, gravel, uphill, downhill and more! The first person to finish the required number of laps wins!

A mass start sees everyone set off at the same time, fighting to get prime position for the grueling effort to come. Strategy is king in this kind of race!
