White Horse Ridge CX Gravelcross
24th September, Chilton, Oxfordshire

What is CX Sportive?

Big challenge rides tend to come in two flavours; massive road sportives and hardcore MTB enduros. But why not mix it up, take on the best of both and spice up your riding?

CX Sportive is an exciting new ride format. It’s ideal for your cross bike, but equally suitable for your XC MTB or even road winter training bike, tweaked for a little rough stuff!* The course mixes back roads, interwoven with byways and a few short tougher off road links that will certainly bring on the heat!

Your choice of steed will define your ride. Will the versatility of an MTB offer the best performance over mixed terrain? Will the pure speed of your road bike make up for time lost on the short, occasional off road dismounts? Or will the CX bike give you the best return where it counts?

To prove a point (or just let you fly the flag for your tribe), we’ll even include your bike choice in your results listing; so if you insist on tackling the route on your mum’s folding shopper, we’ll credit your lunacy!** You’ll have a range of time targets to aim for, with age and gender adjustments, plus everything you’d expect from our events, including full route marking, RFID timing, top notch catering and first class, friendly organisation and support.

**Disclaimer: Don’t tackle the route on your mum’s folding shopper!
