After another break for the Derby National Trophy, the SRAM NDCXL is back this weekend at Swadlincote, courtesy of Mercia CC Lloyds Cycles. This is the second year that this race venue has been used, and the organisers have promised some exciting developments to the course. Last year’s course was a mixture of flat sections to put the power down on, and tricky, technical sections on the wooded, banked areas. Expect extra doses of that technical, cambered fun this year!
Parking at the site isn’t without some restrictions, so there will be marshals available to help you park safely. Please work with them so we can get everyone in and out (remember there’s a need for keep good access for First Aid people etc). There will be additional parking slightly further down the road from the main hard standing – look out for the signs marshal directions if the main carpark is full.
The weather looks like it’s finally changed a little in favour of the mud lovers, with the rest of this week up until Friday looking damp. Saturday itself is looking to be fine at this point though, and the site drains reasonably well – you might not need the jetwasher, but definitely leave the file treads at home.
UPDATE – please note, there’s no riding permitted on the football pitches – can we make sure everyone adheres to this please?
See you at Swad!
