All races are Regional C+ events with full BC points.

We are pleased to have local Berkhamsted based shop and racing club Lovelo Cycle Works supporting our series this season - they will be adding to the overall prize pot and providing services & parts at some events. They are good friends of HHCC so go visit www.lovelocycleworks.co.uk
