Visitors to the Cycle Show, being held at Birmingham's NEC between September the 25th and 28th, will be treated to some top cyclocross (CX) action this year. Elite CX riders will battle it out on a challenging technical course through the woods around the NEC, and even ride inside the exhibition centre itself!
“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," says Chris Holman, Event Director at organisers Upper Street Events "Hopefully by showcasing cyclocross to a wider cycling audience we’ll help to develop that interest even more.”
Exhibitors including Condor, Hope, Raleigh, Kinesis and Pivot will all be showing their latest cyclocross bikes and kit, as well as having experts on-hand to give advice about the sport in what is set to be an exciting line-up for cyclocross fans and enthusiasts.
Lancashire based Hope Technology will be represented in the Sunday races by a strong team lead by National Series Champion Paul Oldham while Raleigh will have several riders taking part in the’s event, including Jake Poole and Matthieu Boulo
