miniXCseries

Tuesday Evenings – 14 Nov, 21 Nov, 28 Nov, 5 Dec 2017

A low key series of multi-lap races for members of the Christchurch Singletrack Club, but non-members are welcome to participate. Simply turn up on the night, grab a number, write down your details and be ready to listen to the race briefing. At each event there will be three races, one for the fast guns, one for the sport riders and one for those who ride at a more leisurely pace.

Course

The course, which uses C2, Deviation and part of the Crocodile Track, is approx 2.5 km long and is almost all singletrack.  This year we will aim to have a few extra sections for the Elite/A Grade race.

This is subject to change but it will be something like this for the Elite/A Grade race:
Week one – basic loop
Week two – basic loop + Upper Crust and Murphs
Week three – basic loop + Download and Upload
Week four – basic loop + Crocodile through the trees and Croc Pot
