Be sure to enter before the closing date of midnight 28/11/2023. On the day entries are not permitted! 

Places will be by selection, based on the up to date National Rankings on the closing date of the event.  The continued growth in participation means that we are approaching realistic capacity at many rounds, so please note that an entry to an event does not guarantee acceptance.

The maximum field size has been set at 100 for any one category, or a total of 140 where there are two or more waves in the same race. Please note that there will not be a reserve list.

Please note that race regulations and schedules are subject to change at any point up to and including on the day.  Any changes will of course be communicated to riders.


Please stay off the course:

All areas of the course are still currently under construction & therefore not open to the public.  Please refrain from riding the course, or any cyclocross features at the park, when unsupervised ahead of the Trophy event.

Resist temptation & book onto one of our many weeknight training sessions instead - these are listed above.
