Opening its doors from the 26th-28th September, The Cycle Show returns to the NEC Birmingham. New to the agenda this year is a series of cyclocross races on Sunday 28 September 2014.
The race is open to elite men and women with an additional mixed industry race for staff from bike shops, distributors and cycle media.
There will no doubt be a high level of competition as there is a prize pot of £1,000 up for grabs for both the men’s and women’s races.
Organised by the Derby Cyclocross team, the course will start and finish inside the show with outdoor sections taking in parts of the woodlands at the NEC. The course will be a suitably tough challenge for top riders and guarantee some great racing to showcase the sport to visitors.
Chris Holman, Event Director at organisers Upper Street Events, said: “It’s really exciting to be hosting cyclocross races at the show and arguably it’s long overdue given the growth in interest in the sport here over the past few years. Hopefully by showcasing cyclocross to a wider cycling audience we’ll help to develop that interest even more.”
And don’t forget if you fancy heading along to the Cycle Show there is a special discount for TWC readers.
