Bolsover & District CC CX
Jan 4 @ 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Bolsover & District CC Cyclocross is back this season.

As the biggest participating club in the NDCXL and having so many great CX riders its great to be able to bring the cross back for the 2019-20 season at a brand new venue on the 4th January 2020.

With the exact location still under wraps to prevent people trying to get a sneaky look at whats in store, what we can say is that in Matt Payne’s words “its got the potential to be the best CX venue in the UK and can rival most of the continental cross venues”.

Club members will have the chance to see the venue first with a preview day and keep an eye out for other chances to get ahead with opportunities to ride there exclusive to Bolsover & District riders.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Matt Payne with any questions or queries!

Keep up to date on the B&DCC Facebook event page.
