Preview: Eastern Region XC Racing

Posted June 2 2010

With round 2 of the Mud, Sweat and Gears Eastern Series at the well known Thetford Forest only days away the team from the fens are already working hard on the rest of the series.

With this in mind the crew visited Codham Park near Braintree - venue for the Eastern Region Champs on August 15th, with Elite MTB racer Billy Whenman and Eastern Region Events Officer Rachel Fenton. As well as having a play on the BMX track they previewed the MTB course and suggested a few fun additions.

If you are also interested in having a look at parts of the course then Mud, Sweat and Gears has organised a three week series of events in the weeks leading up to the champs called the Weekday Blast. Offering Wednesday night opportunities to ‘race' around a short section of the Codham Park course for an hour or to just turn up and have a play it's a great chance to try your skills in a informal setting.
