The National Cyclo-Cross Championships come to Peel Park in Bradford on 7-8 January 2017. We’ve launched a new website to help riders, spectators and sponsors alike. We’ll be adding more info as the event gets closer, but there’s already plenty on there, including the all-important link to online entry.

National Cyclo-Cross Series 2016-17


Yorkshire Kinesis Winter Series Information:

PRESSURE WASHER UPDATES: Our sponsor Kinesis have provided two pressure washers for use by Yorkshire Cyclo-Cross Association. These are going to be made available at Yorkshire Points events. They will also be available at the end for a short time for those of you wanting to give the bikes a quick rinse before leaving. They will be set up by Joe Parker in a Kinesis wash area next to the pits. He will start them and make sure they have petrol at the beginning of the day. To be able to use them, there are a few simple rules to follow.

1) Can only be used during your race or your riders race: Don’t try and use it to wash down your bike after practice if others need it during their event.
2) No Water – No Wash: You bring your own water container suitable for the pressure washer to draw water up and enough water to do so.Large water containers are ideal.DO NOT LET IT RUN DRY!
3) It’s not a service wash! You wash your own.
4) £1 a day as contribution to Petrol costs. There will be a bucket to collect money by the side.
5) Take turns nicely! Queue up to use them and take turns. If it’s not your race, you can’t use them
6) You break it, you pay for it.
7) When it’s time to pack away, the pressure washer will be taken away even if you are still wanting to wash your bike.
JOE WILL BE AROUND TO ASSIST WITH USING IT IF NEEDED – INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE WITH THE PRESSURE WASHER. We will see how we go but if there are any issues using them, you may lose the opportunity!

ARM NUMBER UPDATE

The First time you ride winter cross, you will be sold an arm number for a £1 to be used at all YCCA cross events including next Summer’s cross events. You must display your arm number in order to race. Riders not wearing their correct number may be refused permission to ride by the Commissaires.

Why is that? Your number identifies you in a race.

  • We can identify the podium winners quickly for announcing.
  •  If you are injured and unable to speak, we can access your emergency details from the signing on sheet.
  • The announcer can give you a name check
  • If the Commissaire needs to take any action, such as dangerous riding or swearing – he/she can identify you

If you lose or forget your arm number, you will have to wear a temporary number to ride. This will be the same number registered to you. A £5 deposit will be taken for the number and returned at the end of the race at signing on.

WINTER SERIES AGE CATEGORIES

It is important that in order for us to sort out category prizes at the end of winter that you sign on under the correct category. Also please ensure you use the correct cat on the signing on sheet. V for V isn’t enough, it needs to be V40-44 or V45-49 or WV50 etc.
