by 0

Just when you’d forgotten the wind, the steep grass climbs and unforgiving rocky descents of the Greatest Cyclocross Race In The World, it’s time to suddenly get that flutter in your stomach again. While the race itself isn’t until Sunday September 27th 2015, the entry forms for this year’s race are released on June 1st. And that is in two weeks’ time!

Thankfully, unlike some events where it’s the quickest mouse-clicker who gets to enter the race, the Peaks is more civilised, giving you a couple of weeks to get your entry form in, complete with your previous attempts and your palmares in order to justify your application for a place at the hardest, most revered and certainly one of the most ridiculous, ‘cross bike races in the world.
