Our biggest CX Sportive season to date rounds off on March 10th on the South Downs. The Southern Sting CX takes the mixed terrain format over the big hills of the West Sussex downs, bringing a whole new set of challenges to riders on cross bikes, MTBs, hybrids and a all sorts of different machines!
CX Sportives have been making waves for the past couple of years, introducing road and MTB riders to a different kind of event that mixes the two disciplines on a fast and varied course, and the result has been a clear favourite, generating great atmosphere and even starting to win rider awards in the magazines.
You get great organisation and support throughout the event, full route marking, rider timing and energy drink support from Torq Fitness, plus full catering at the start and finish, so you can kick back and relax post-ride!
The Southern Sting CX course offers distances from 50-80km, on back lanes, farm tracks and bridleways, with stretches of singletrack and sections of the iconic South Downs Way included too. It’s a great course and a truly exciting style of event; so if you haven’t discovered the joy of CX yet, give it a go!
