It’s still three weeks away but the British 2018 CycloCross Championships will soon be upon us so VeloUK went to see the course with competitor & consultant to the organisers, Keith Murray

It was the day after the Bradford Trophy, a month out from the championships and I was keen to see what would be different to the National Trophy course that was held at Hetton Lyons last year. There to meet me was Keith Murray, a well known figure in cyclo-cross both nationally and in the North East and who has helped organise National Trophy events as well as compete in them and the National Championships for many years.

To be successful on the course at Hetton Lyons Country Park (near Sunderland) will take fitness, luck and skill Keith says adding “it is the ultimate course for the national champs which it should be”.

The course, as we found walking it on a freezing cold morning the day after the Bradford National Trophy, has a lot of elevation and riders will always be going up hill and down track as those who rode the Trophy there will already know.

And whilst the organisers have pinned down lots of details for the big weekend, the only guessing game will be the conditions but we can’t even begin to predict what they might be other than cold.

The Course

At the National Trophy last year at Hetton Lyons Country Park there was a big bottle neck on the run up to the bank just after the start so the start of the course for the 2018 Championships will have more of a sweeping run into the first off road section and will miss the run up on the out lap.

This will add around 50 or so metres into a right hand turn taking the riders up through the trees on a drag of a climb to join the course and the section that was pretty muddy last year. Still is if it was frozen solid!

Keith says of this opening section, “I think that will add to the race in that anyone who doesn’t get a great starting position, isn’t going to get held up with a back log of riders so that will make it more of race on that first lap”.

That opening lap aside, the course overall is pretty similar to the last National Trophy and it has a mix of terrain; muddy bits, grassy sections, off camber and tarmac. “We have made minor tweaks like taking out some off camber bits which didn’t add anything to the race for example” says Keith.

“The whole mantra for this course is for the riders to be racing each other rather than battling with the course. Obviously, if we have torrential rain and it is really muddy, it might be a man versus course battle but if it’s icy like it is today, it will be a totally different race”.

The feature of the course which the guys from the Hetton club dug out of the grass bank a few weeks before the Trophy last year, is a sweeping off camber right hand descent which will feature again in the 2018 championships.

It is, Keith says, a true ‘cross course with some running on the one bank where you may be able to gain ten seconds on someone but equally there are some drags where if you haven’t got the tyre pressures right, and can’t find the line where there is traction, a runner will lose those ten seconds and a punchy rider will do well. “It will suit riders like Nick Craig, Paul Oldham and Ian Field” added Keith.

Like it is for any region, the event is the jewel in the crown for CXNE. Mike Charlton and Lisa Cooke are the lead organisers with Hetton Hawks cycling club and Keith says they have had a fantastic response from cross riders and their family and friends in the North East to volunteer and help at the championships.

Since the rebirth of ‘CXNE’, they have held five National Trophy events, two at South Shields that Jamie Brady headed up, a couple at Durham that Keith Murray was involved in and then Hetton Hawks put on an amazing race last year.

This championship, says Keith, will have the pinnacle of organisation and be a show piece of the sport and show how far it has come since CXNE was reborn ten years ago. “It will show we have the resources, organisation, the riders and the volunteers to put the British Championships on” explained Keith.

Hurdles – Coming off the tarmac with a right hander and onto the grass, the hurdles are immediately before the pits – here is Beth Crumpton taking them in her stride at the Trophy held at Hetton Lyons Country Park.

The Pits. The exit from the first pit will be slightly different and the approach to the run up will be slightly longer.

The Bridge: Steve Hesler, the construction guy, he’s planning his MKII bridge that will be bigger, steeper, faster. Last year Tom Pidcock was pulling cross ups on it so that will be on the cards again and the bridge is good because it gives the riders some speed into the grassy back section. I think we will change section that a little so you hit the off camber section with a bit of speed rather than turning on the camber and sliding into the tapes if it’s wet.

The bit in the woods is still there and has been opened up a bit more with a steeper, faster drop into it preceded by a swooping corner and a punchy climb into the woods. Here Ffion James at speed on the descent into the woods last year

The Riders
Whilst entry was (is) still open, there is a list of riders already entered and on it are those expected to be in contention for the titles. The British Championships are in some ways hard to predict, especially in the non Elite categories, because not all the contenders do the National Trophy and that leaves the way open for some surprises.

In the Elite men though, the battle for the win should be between defending champion Ian Field (Hargroves-Ridley-Montezuma’s) and Grant Ferguson who was second in Bradford. Lewis Craven sprung a surprise with third at Bradford ahead of Field and so has thrown his hat into the ring as a medal contender but the surprise is no entry for Liam Killeen which is a shame as the former champion always adds that extra spice to a race. Fingers crossed he races it…

Other riders to watch out for include Jack Clarkson, former champions Nick Craig and Paul Oldham, David Fletcher, Steven James and Rob Jebb.

In the Elite Women, Helen Wyman has been in sparkling form in the World Cups and will be chasing at least her 10th title but Nikki Brammeier riding for an exciting new team (details next week) has won the last two years and those two should be the main contenders along with Beth Crumpton and Hannah Payton.

Of all the races though, the Under 23 ones for Men and Women look like being absolute blinders. Being first up on the second day, the first race on the Sunday will be the Women’s race and what a corker of a line up this is. To begin with, a former World champion in Evie Richards. Add to that mix a very talented Sophie Wright, Ffion James, and Anna Kay and the fight for the stripes in this race should be a good one.

Others to look out for include Emily Ashwood, Xan Crees, Harriet Harnden, Abbie Manley (Hargroves-Ridley-Montezuma’s) Amira Mellor, Amy Perryman (Hargroves-Ridley-Montezuma’s), Kara Perryman (Hargroves-Ridley-Montezuma’s) and Sophie Thackray. No doubt there will be others!

And if the Under 23 Women’s race is exciting, then the Men’s Under 23’s will be the same or more so. Tom Pidcock leads the charge and the double world champion in cross and the time trial (Junior) has already shown at Under 23 level he will take some beating.

Ben Turner likewise has shown great form and will be in the mix and Daniel Tulett too should be another name ringing out over the loud speakers in the race. Billy Harding has led the way in the Under 23 national trophy whilst other names to listen out for are Frazer Clacherty, Calum Fernie, George Fox, William Gascoyne, Ross Harnden, Thomas Mein, Cameron Orr, Joe Williams and Harry Yates (Hargroves-Ridley-Montezuma’s)

The first race to kick off the championships weekend will be the Women’s Veteran title race where National Trophy star and new world champion Kate Eedy is a favourite as is Maddie Smith who was in awesome form at Bradford. Another new world champion competing will be Helen Pattinson (Hargroves-Ridley-Montezuma’s) whilst other names to look out for are Marie Jackson, Alison Kinloch and Lucy Siddle.

The second race of the championships will be the Veteran 50 Plus with favourites being Tim Davies, Pete Middleton and Tim Gould. There is though a familiar name in the entry list, five times a consecutive winner of the British National Cyclo-cross Championships between 1978 and 1982, Chris Wreghitt. The results this season don’t suggest he’ll be a contender but he’s a class act providing of course it’s the same Chris Wreghitt!

Other names expected to be in the fight for the stripes are Roy Chamberlain, the North East’s Noel Clough, Steven Davies (Hargroves-Ridley-Montezuma’s), Julian Gould, Dave McMullen, Phil Roach and Mick Style.

One of the favourites for the Junior Men, Cameron Mason

The racing that day is then all Youth based until the final race on Saturday is the Vet 40 one. First up for the Youth races are the Under 16 Girls where Millie Couzens is the overwhelming favourite with Anna and Maddie Wadsworth expected to be in the mix along with Anna Flynn, Lucy Hart, Chloe Hinchliffe, and Eluned King.

In the Under 14 Girls races at the same time, this will be a tough battle for the jersey with the likes of Zoe Backstedt, Grace Lister and Ella Maclean-Howell just three names expected to feature. Emily Carrick-Anderson, Anoushka Minale and Madeleine Osborn are others showing good form.

It is then the turn of the boys and in the Under 16 Boys event, the favourite list is headed up by the current National Trophy Series leader Oliver Stockwell. Based on current results others like Emile Alexander and Daniel Barnes will be in the battle at the front along with Joseph Pidcock, Alec Gregory, Finlay Pickering and Adam Bent.

The Under 14 Boys is too close to call as well with so many of these young lads taking it in turns to win in the National Trophy with Joshua Tarling winning at Bradford but Ben Askey wasn’t far away and others like Sullivan Berry and Griff Lewis should also feature at the front of the race.

Nick Craig, a favourite for the Veteran 40 event

The final race on the Saturday is the Vet 40s and in this picking a winner is a little difficult because although Nick Craig has pretty much dominated the National Trophy Series, he will have his challengers. Paul Oldham for example and Ian Taylor who have both beaten Nick this season but there is so little between them, that the battle for the jersey should be an enthralling one. Others in the mix should include Daniel Alexander, Darren Atkins, Neil Ellison, Adrian Lansley and Lee Shunburne among others.

Fast forward to Sunday and after the Under 23 championships, the Junior Men take to the course and in there, the favourite is a young rider doing big things in Europe, Ben Tulett. But keeping him honest will be the likes of Euan Cameron, Oliver Draffan, Matthew Ellis, Jenson Young and the National Trophy Series leader Cameron Mason who knows how to handle his bike and has the power too for pushing the pedals around quickly.

As always, the British Championships is always a step up from the Trophy races and some great racing is expected ….
