and this time it's even crOsser
MONSTER CROSS - Like Cross But More Cross
We love cross. Cross is awesome. But sometimes we’re left wanting more, feeling like it’s over all too soon. That’s where Monster Cross comes in – it’s like cross, but more cross. Awesome like cyclocross but with more awesomeness; 3 hours long and featuring more course, with more singletrack, more run ups, more hurdles and more cowbells.
For 2017 we're extremely proud to have Big Bobble Hats on board as the new title sponsor of the event. Their enthusiasm and input will make this year's Monster Cross EVEN CROSSER :)
The course at Monster Cross is longer than that of a normal cx race at approximately 6km in length & will have plenty of interesting features to keep you wanting to go out for another lap. The race starts at 11am, simply complete as many laps as possible in 3hrs.
Race categories are open to solo riders and pairs. Open to all riders over 16 years of age.
Solo riders - See if you can strike the balance of intensity & endurance to complete as many laps as possible before the bell rings to call in the final lap.
Entry fee £25 per rider.
Pairs - Sprint, change, sprint, change, repeat. Pairs can handover every lap to race as fast as humanly possible over the entire duration. Every lap can be approached like the opening lap of a normal cx race. Can you taste the blood in your mouth already?!?
Entry fee is £40 per pair.
Monster Cross is being held at Catton Hall, Walton Upon Trent, DE12 8LN. The site is close to the A38 so has great access from the M1, M42 & M6.
We're making sure that there's plenty to get your teeth stuck into to keep things interesting & engaging every lap. Please take a look at the photos & preview video of last year's course to get a taste of what's in store. If things get wet and messy, don't worry as we have a dedicated jet washing area by the pits/handover area.
The course is being designed so that it will favour cross bikes and as a CX race our preference would be that you to compete on a cross bike but if you don't have one you're still more than welcome to come and race on an mtb.
Monster Cross has been made possible with the help and support of our lovely partners. Please take a few moments to go and take a look at the amzingly good things that they do. Enjoy them. Buy things from them. Thanks.
