- Newbury Summer Cyclocross
Just took a stroll through the park and the ground looks surprisingly dry and hard, even in the bits I’d expect to be squelchy. I’d go for something fast rolling. They were beginning to mark out a course in the lower flat part of the park but would assume that the course heads up the hill.
Edit: … and the grass is all freshly cut and wet, looks super slippy!Posted 4 years ago
Hopefully they’ll have a slightly more technical course next week, hardly touched my brakes for the whole race.
Agree with that, or at least stike some hurdles in. The top end of the park looks like you could put some technical sections in. They did say that they want to cater for all so I guess it will be similar every week.
It was indeed very bumpy, my hands started to go numb after about 30 minutes. The bumps made for a very hard energy sapping race. Happy with 6th though and lap times were pretty consistant, all within about 6 seconds of each other.Posted 4 years agocrankslaveMember
Awesome painful fun last night.
I asked about barriers and it takes them into a whole lot of additional BC regs to do and it make it less of an open for all race, but some extra tech would be good if it can be found.

oh btw.. round 7 of the western league (26th jun) – odd down they are using part of the new circuit and the bmx ramp.. including start ramps, berms and jumps!
” It uses bits of the new tarmac circuit and the best bits of Chris old ‘Tumps’ course including the start ramp and first set of jumps and berm on the newly refurbished BMX track.”Posted 4 years agoAdam_BucklandMember
A good old fashion bit of resurrection…
Just to let you know that the series will run again this summer, it’ll be on each Thursday during June and the first two in July. The venue is the same as last year but we are working on some new course layouts. Those of you that could make it last year hopefully noticed the course getting slightly more technical each week, we tried to introduce new challenges where possible but keep it accessible for all. The plan this year is to continue with same plan and hopefully boards will make an appearance!!!
