Yorkshire Summer Cyclocross Series

A series of off-road events mainly in West Yorkshire, so close to the Pendle area. 

There is significant support for these events from North West riders over summer, with races fro all age categories.

 


 

National Trophy Series

This is the national cyclocross series with 6 rounds each season, at various venue. Each round has races for Youth (U14/U16), Junior, Senior, Vets and Women.

Although open to all riders, to be competitive a rider needs to be doing well at regional events to consider taking part. Some of the best cyclcross riders in the country take part in this series such as Paul Oldham.

Organisers may put on races for the U12’s, but these are aimed at local riders, and do not form part of the National Series.
