Looking for some CX action for the weekend? Through our MTB arm (trailbreak.co.uk), we have the next in our Whyte Winter 50 series this Saturday (12th Feb), from Letcombe Regis near Wantage. We reckon this one is worth a crack for you CX guys too!

It is a mountain bike event first and foremost, and compared to the CX Sportive course at Woodcote the off road proportion is a lot higher, but the nature of the trails around the Ridgeway are pretty CX suitable. The weather looks good, and the course doesn’t get any more technical than the most demanding stretches of the Woodcote course, and with a choice of 25, 40 or 50km courses, there’s a great workout to be had here for your ‘cross steed!

You can sign up now at trailbreak.co.uk, or just come along and enter on the day.

And for those of you asking about the next CX Sportive? There’s more on the way; details very soon!
