The venue of Misterton Hall, Lutterworth, A4034, Junction 20, M1 is a popular cross circuit. The course consists of an excellent mix of fast woodland, gravel paths, grassland and tarmac.

Event timetable / entry fees:

The course generally drains very well ensuring you can complete the race distance on one bike unless you suffer a mechanical. I have done my best to highlight any hazards on the track (one section looks like a murder scene with forensic markings everywhere).

Gazebos / Flags / Tents
Cycling Club Gazebos / Flags / Tents are very welcome in the start and finish meadow. Please ensure you take any litter home with you or use the bins provided. & will be present at Misterton Hall

Spectators: You are very welcome to explore the estate. Please be aware that some sections of the course do not require course marking tape. The course is designed so that in certain areas you can see the competitors 3 or 4 times in one spot. Please use the clearly marked crossing points in the start / finish meadow.

Many thanks to the league sponsors BWA (Commercial) Ltd, Ridley Bikes & Lazer Helmets for the course marking tape, members and friends of WVCC for help prior to and on the day. Welland Valley CC have been very fortunate that for over 25 years we have been able to use the splendid grounds of Misterton Hall for youth cycling activities and set up today’s course over a period of time.

Mrs Craven loves hosting this and other cycling events. Her enjoyment comes from watching you all participate and the friendliness of the sport. Mrs Craven can normally be found on car park duty mid-morning! If you get the opportunity to say ‘thank you’ please do.

Have a cracking days racing and enjoy.
Kind regards, Dean Barnett, Organiser
