This Sunday 17/10/2010 see the final round of the Nutcracker XC races at Hamsterley forest. There will be four races throughout the day, one being the Sweat Monster race for the under 12s, ( the stars of the future ). There is no problem entering on the day. Signing on opens at 8.30, races start at 10.00. A lap of the course is approximately 4.5 miles in length with a good mixture of nature and man made singletrack, some cracking downhill sections, fire roads for the over taking moves and a stream crossing which should wash the mud off the boots.
