Round 1 – Hardwick Hall preview

In what is becoming a tradition, Bolsover and District Cycling Club will host the first round of the 2016-2017 Notts and Derby Cyclocross League season, at the historic Hardwick Hall.

Similar to last year, riders will take on the off-cambered descent into the bottom field. A long sweeping corner will bring them back towards the arena via a hard gravel climb finishing with a kick to test the legs right where everyone will be watching.

Currently the course is looking to be fast and dry, although with a forecast of heavy rain early in the day it might be worth keeping some mud tyres on standby!

See you on Saturday and good luck!
