About our league
We offer competitive off-road bike racing for all ages and abilities. You don’t need any specialist equipment to start, as long as your bike is safe for yourself and others.
The Ridley - Lazer West Midlands Cyclo-Cross League is supported for the 2017 - 2018 season by Ridley Bikes and Lazer Helmets. We thank BWA Insurance Brokers for their last 3 years of support.
The League starts again on 3rd September 2017. The Sunday events are organised by local clubs. There are different leagues for Under 6s; Under 8s; Under 10s; Under 12s; Under 14s; Under 16s; Junior Men (16 – 18); Senior men (18 - 40); Women; and Veteran men (40+).
Each event is different, but typically races will involve a mixture of technical and non-technical terrain on a short circuit – usually around a mile and a half. Some sections may require riders to dismount and carry their bikes. Race length varies from an hour for Senior men to around ten minutes for Under 6 and 8s. Lapped riders still get placed, so as long as you finish you’ll get a result.
The League is very friendly and welcomes beginners and elite riders. The League uses a chip timing system for fast and accurate results and uses a professional commentator where the land owner allows broadcasts.
Registration will open on the 1st July 2017 and close on Sunday 20th August two weeks before the first event or when a relevant category has reached it's rider limit.
