Published: 1st October, 2012


This Winter the South West Soggy Bottom XC series celebrates its' 10th year with 2 rounds at Newnham Park. Round 1 - November 18th 2012 and Round 2 is on January 20th 2013.

The series offers a perfect winter set up for racing with top quality courses coupled with indoor registration and cafe, flushing loos, hard standing car parking, live race timing and commentary.

The courses will be approximately 5k with full marshal cover around the course and first aid on hand and will offer a tempting mix of trails around the historic XC venue.

Organiser Martyn Salt of Inevent is pleased to be continuing the series: "It's been a busy couple of years and we would not have been able to continue the series without a lot of support from Maddie and Jay at Fully Sussed, but i'm keen to get my hands dirty again and the setting of the courses used to be one of the highlights for me so i'll be back raking, staking and making some great routes in the park"


As a thankyou, to the 5000 participants over the last 10 years, the organisers are offering 10 entry fees for all categories for entries received by October 10. As usual there are a full range of categories with prizes for the top 3 in each category but the focus is firmly on having fun on the bike...whatever the conditions.
