Ulster Cyclo-Cross


Ulster XC Series


All Ireland CX 2017


Date: Friday 25 August 2017
Event: Orangefield Cross
Venue: Orangefield Playing Fields, Belfast
Host club: Kinning Cycles

Course Description:

25th August sees Kinning Cycles kick of the cyclocross season with their popular Friday evening race at the superfast Orangefield park venue.
This year will see Under 12 riders racing the full circuit alongside  under 14s and women in race 1.
Race 2 will be for B race men with gridding determined by order of entry so don't hang about you want to be near the front of the grid!
Race 3 will be the feature race with A race men and junior men followed by the under 16 boys.

The course will once again start in the velodrome running in a clockwise direction before heading in a fast rush under the trees to the back of the circuit into the never ending sweeping corners leading to the off camber bank where you'll want to have a good position because this will spread the field out!
Back across the pitches,  through a new woodchip path section and onto the small but technical banks and the long, fast straights to return to the start area and event village before catching your breath and doing it all again!

There will be a mini course open all evening for the younger riders to play on beside the velodrome.
