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 BWA West Midlands Cyclo-Cross League is supported by BWA Insurance Brokers.
The League starts again on 4th September 2016 and runs into January 2017. The Sunday events are organised by local clubs. There are different leagues for 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 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 2016 and close on Sunday 20th August or when a relevant category has reached it's rider limit. The 2015 League registration closed at 6pm on the 24th August 2015 with 702 riders registered.
