Date: Sunday 20 November 2016
Event: Round 7 - Ulster Cyclo-Cross Series 
Venue: Ormeau Park, Belfast
Host club: XMTB McConvey Cycles

Course Description:

Building on last year's successful course, the organisers have utilized the open grass sections at the Ormeau Road end of the park. Featuring an interesting combination of wide fast corners, a long off camber section, steep descent and a tough uphill running section with most of the course visible from the event village.
Under 6 and under 8 riders will share their own mini course with Under 10 and under 12 using a shorter section of the main course. 
Parking is on the gravel pitch beside the Ozone leisure centre with showers available after the race. Toilet facilities are in the Ozone as well as adjacent to the course.
Please follow the direction arrows from the car park to the race circuit. (approx 5 min walk on flat tarmac path)

XMTB McConvey Cycles would like to thank Belfast city council for their continued support in running races in their parks.

NOTE: Clubs wishing to put up gazebos are welcome at the start/finish but they must be in place before practice opens at 9:15.
