South Downs Gravelcross CX Sportive Debuts April 9th

by Holly Blades

The newest edition of the CX Sportive event series arrives on April 9th in the form the South Downs Gravelcross CX. From it's base at the foot of the mighty Butser Hill, right on the South Downs Way, the South Downs Gravelcross CX is a fantastic addition to the calendar!

Chopping and changing between winding tarmac lanes, tracks and bridleways, and featuring sections of the iconic South Downs Way, it's the ideal early spring outing. The course variety will keep you on your toes, the backdrop will keep you inspired, and we will keep you fuelled and on track with the full package of organisation and support that you can rely on at CX Sportive events!

CX Sportive events are built on a mixed surface riding ethos (on road and off), and from event to event, the tone of that mix can vary. The South Downs Gravelcross keeps it physical with an impressive hill profile, over a course healthy doses of tarmac and dirt track on and off of the South Downs ridge. Loops to the east and west of the event base at the park let you explore the very best of this impressive landscape, and the whole thing finishes with a descent of Butser Hill (the South Downs highest point) that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

Courses choices are 72, 56 & 42km, all fully marked to make navigation a breeze; plus route maps and GPS files are available too. Two feed stations on the course will keep you fueled up, and rider support vehicles will be out and about to get you out of a fix. Back at base, finish line rider timing will tell you which medal you've earned, and hot food and drink will be available to help you relax and recover.
