New for 2009 are our cross country ‘ghetto’ handicap races.
Now in their third incarnation they’ve gone from strength to strength with a high turnout each week and even a few downhillers joining in the action!
These races are held on some of the best and most technical trails we can find, with nice steady climbs and steep rocky descents. The handicap system means that everyone is on a level pegging, from occasional rider to elite xc, and it certainly brings out the competitive streaks that no one admits to having!
Mike provided two cakes on the finish line of race three and next week its beer. Smashing!
The races are excellent training for the BUCS XC race so hopefully Sheffield will be a force to be reckoned with this year!
