    Leicester Forest CC - LFCC are hosting Round 12A of the West Midlands League as cyclocross returns to Beaumont Leys on the 15th January. The famous course has hosted a National Trophy event as recently as 2011, but there has not been a race there since 2013.

    Nick Walling of Team GB Cyclocross has designed a varied and challenging circuit. “It’s a course of two halves” says Nick “one technical with single track and jumps, the other power - with fast tarmac and an off-camber bank to keep you on your toes!”

    The compact nature of the site means that spectators will be guaranteed a good view of proceedings and there should be a great atmosphere with racing for all age groups. If you’ve never tried cyclocross and want to know what it is all about, come along and see for yourself.

    Some of the best riders in the UK have raced in the West Midlands League this season including Hannah Payton and 2016 National Champion Liam Killeen, so the standard is sure to be high. Despite that, riders of all abilities are welcome to race - you don’t need any specialist equipment as long as your bike is safe for yourself and others. Race length varies from about an hour for senior riders to 10 minutes for Under 10s. With electronic chip timing, lapped riders still get placed - if you finish, you’ll get a result!

    More information is available on the West Midlands Cyclocross League website.
