The schedule is much the same as in recent years with a few minor modifications:

  • The first two and last two Tuesday evening 10s will use the popular 1U/10B “Roadworks” course that was introduced last season.  This will also be an option for any other events should circumstances require.
  • A Club 100 championship is reintroduced, with the ECCA Open event on E2/100 being nominated.
  • The late summer Saturday series has been truncated to three events on the Briercliffe 10 course.


Hitchin Nomads Cyclo-Cross Race, 1st November 2015 – Important Information

When is it?

Hitchin Nomads CC will be hosting the sixth round of the 2015-16 Central Cyclo-Cross League fixtures on Sunday November 1st 2015 at Standalone Farm, Letchworth.

What is it?

Cyclo-Cross is an off-road bike race around a marked out course, generally on grass which can get very muddy! Adult laps last approximately 7-10 mins and there are normally at least two points in a lap when riders need to dismount and run over low barriers. Children’s laps are approximately 3-5 mins on shorter courses with no hurdles or barriers.

A number of races take place throughout the day from 10am until 3pm. Males and females are split into various age categories but often race on the course at the same time.   Ages range from Under 10s (racing for 10 minutes in total), to over 50s (racing for 40 minutes in total) to senior men (racing for 1 hour in total).

Racers are allocated individual race numbers and laps are timed. The winner is the first rider to complete the most laps within the time allowed and there is prize money for the lead riders in each category.

Where is it?

The racing will take place at Standalone Farm in Letchworth. Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation owns the venue and they will manage parking and run the Greenway Café.

How do I join in?

Children’s races are a mixture of boys and girls using both Cyclo-Cross bikes and Mountain bikes. Adults tend to use mainly Cyclo-Cross bikes but Mountain Bikes are allowed.

There is a Novice race category for adults.   This allows anyone to try ‘Cross out for the first time in a friendly, less pressured race format.

Race entry and other details can be found at the links below.

Entry is available on the day but it is cheaper and easier of you register online. Online entry closes at 11.55pm on the Tuesday before the race. Holders of British Cycling membership will need to take their licence along on the day. Non-membership holders will need to buy a £3 day licence on the day.

IC30 HNCC 2015 Start Sheet (final)

N.B. start sheet is amended to remove some mistakes, incorporate some further early / late starts, and avoid having slower riders right at the end (timekeepers will want their coffee and cake).  Some extra riders added since it was being amended anyway and some early DNS Apols removed while I was there.  Please check your start times.  Most have moved by just a minute or two.
