Before you enter CCC Short Track (XCC) MTB Series - Race 3

We look forward to running an exciting race for you to enjoy.

Here are a few technical notes for the race itself.

TECHNICAL REGS - The race will be run as a XC MTB event and we generally apply the British Cycling technical regulations for this type of race. The race must be completed in full on the same bike. Only wheels and other small components (e.g. chain) can be replaced in the event of a failure. This can only take place in the technical area by the finish line. You may carry tools with you to make any repairs.

LITTER - Dropping of litter will not in any circumstances be accepted and riders will be disqualified if they are observed dropping gel wrappers or other litter. If you cannot put an empty gel wrapper into a pocket or stuff it down your jersey, do not take the gel in the first place.

CONDUCT - Bad language will not be tolerated, in particular towards race officials, marshals or members of the public, and any reports of it may result in the rider concerned being disqualified. You may be disqualified for littering, cutting corners, riding dangerously or arriving after your allocated start time. While the event takes place on private land there may be walkers or others who are not aware of the race in progress so please be courteous where possible.

About CCC Short Track (XCC) MTB Series - Race 3

What is XCC Short Track?



In brief, Cross-country  Short Track (XCC) is an exciting and relatively new format of cross-country (XC) which, since its inception early in 2018, has played an important part in the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup.



It’s a high-tempo blast that’s fierce for riders, fun for spectators and a great introduction to Mountain Bike racing.



The duration for the race is 20 to 30 minutes and is battled over courses that are between 1.5 & 2km long and should be around 3 to 4 minutes a lap.



 



Race Series Information:

The third race is back at the Jubilee Hill Mountain Bike course and will be round a different course on the top section to keep things interesting. Parking will be at the gravel car park at the top of the hill and then it is a short walk/ride to the course.
