Morvelo City Cross
09/11/2013 - Piece Hall, Halifax - Sportive
Ever wanted to race round a grade one listed Georgian Masterpice?
CityCross is coming to the Piece Hall, Halifax
We've had two types of people get in touch since we launched CityCross. Those that say "Bring it on. The harder the better!" and those that say "Will it wreck me? Will me and my bike die?". Well here is what the course will be like in essence, treading that fine line between the two.
The course will be heavily based on a traditional cyclocross courses, with grass, water and sand but also with concrete and cobbles. Nothing that endangers the riders though. There will also be manmade obstacles in the style of hurdles to jump over, things to bunny hop over and other bits to ride up and down and take multiple lines through. Nothing so technical and dangerous only 1% of the field can do it and if we do include a more testing technical section there will be a chicken run around the obstacle.
Your pride and joy won't be in for any more damage than a normal cyclocross race, unless you choose too, and if you are worried about mashing your tubs then bring your clinchers instead.
