2016 Nutcracker Altura XC Series!
Welcome to the 2016 Nutcracker Altura XC Series. It’s due to be a busy year at Nutcracker HQ, with the usual 6 events in the usual 6 locations, plus the addition of a round of the British Cycling XC Series at Dalby Forest in May.
Adey’s been working hard on the courses, particularly at Whinlatter where we’ll see a whole new course for this year, featuring the awesome switchback descent on the Altura North trail. You won’t not be impressed. It all kicks off on Sunday 20th March and we look forward to seeing you there.
New for this year: we’ve phased out the Master category in line with current British Cycling category guidelines. All you would be masters can now compete in the Sport category at the earlier race time of 11.30am.
Don’t forget the end of season bash at the Dales Bike Centre on Saturday 13th August. We’re already working on the choice of beer. This year there will be no series prizes, but we’ll still be keeping tabs on a series standing and so you’ll be able to rate your overall series performance as per last year. Best 4 rounds to count.
That’s all folks. See you on the trail.
Nutcracker Racing Team
As per last year, we're looking for a team of willing volunteers to assist us with marshalling at each event.
It’s not onerous and we’ll keep you fed and refreshed throughout the day. Our friends at Altura have also thrown in a raft of goodies for all marshals and you really don’t want to miss out on these!
The events can’t function without marshals and if you’re willing to put something back into the sportContact Us
