The course

The course will be similar to last year’s event due to the sheer amount of positive comments we got back from the riders. Beacon Country Park offers something for everyone and we have designed a challenging yet fun course, because we think Cross is really about having fun in the mud!

The course consists of paths, grass fields, descents, run-ups, off camber turns, hairpins and much, much more.
