Upcoming Events

Hi All.

East Bradford Cyclo-Cross Championship

Our own EBCC Cyclo-Cross Championship will be based on the results of  the Bradford National Trophy Event at Peel Park. We want as many of our EBCC riders to take part as possible to really show off our great club at a local major event!

Riders who will be under 12 this year (born 2003 or later) don't have to pre-enter and their race will be near the BMX track at peel Park starting at 12.45 for the Under 8's, then the Under 10's and finally the Under 12's. These are short races and will cost £2 per rider. There will be a sweetie bag for everyone who takes part.
For riders born in 2002 and earlier, the race is pre-enter only with entries closing on Tuesday 2nd december and this will be on the full course around the park.

Details are here:

Also there is the North of England Cyclo-Cross Championship for riders Under 14 and older in the North east. (There are additional races for Under 12's but these are not championship races). Again the entry closes shortly for the championship and details are here:
