Published: 10th November, 2010

Welsh Cycling are pleased to announce that, after a year's absence, there will be a 4 race Welsh XC series for 2011. 

The series, supported by TapTiming, Extreme Medics and Ana Nichoola consists of four rounds across Wales. Two classic Welsh venues are joined by two new venues and we have been working hard on the courses to make sure they are challenging and fun. You can enter all four races individually or enter the series and get a 25% discount so get your entries in quick!

Dates and Venues: 

Round 1: February 13th. Cwrt Y Celyn Farm, Pontypridd. CF37 5BJ. Fast grass sections combined with a technical descent, a rooty cambered section through trees and a leg-burning switchback climb.
Round 2: March 5th. Cefn Dyrys, near Builth Wells. LD2 3RD. Doubletrack paths combined with fast flowing natural singletrack through trees and a combination of short, steep climbs and long drags.
Round 3: April 3rd. Coed Y Brenin (Old Visitor Centre), Maesgwm, LL40 2HY. Plenty of climbing and descending. Mixture of Rocky man-made and natural rooty wooded singletrack and maybe even a pump track thrown in for a bit of fun!
Round 4: May 15th. Fforest Fields Campsite, Builth Wells, LD1 5RT. Big open climb, steep descents, rooty cambered sections and plenty of singletrack-what more could you want?
