Southern XC MTB Series
Southern XC MTB Series 2014
Five rounds and one new venue for 2014
The dates and venues for the 2014 Southern XC Mountain Bike Series have been confirmed.
The cross country series will contest five rounds with one brand new venue and two well known returning.
The five courses with the finale at a brand new XC course at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park near Petersfield in Hampshire. These woods have been used for gravity enduros for a number of years and the team at QECP Collective have found a great course using the best of the timed runs linked with more singletrack and fireroad. It’s a bit ‘hilly’ but you’re always moaning the courses are too flat!
The organisers say that: “We’ve gone for a compact series this year to avoid the ‘last round’ syndrome and we’ll be doing double points for the last round (just like F1!) so with that and a new venue you have no excuse!”
There is an increase of entry fees by £1 across the board apart from Under 13s, Juvenile and Youth categories. This is to help offset increased venue fees after no change in three years.
Online entry for the races will open soon.
