SRAM NDCXL, Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire

Cross is back, and Cyclocross Handbook is delighted to be back too, bigger and hopefully better than ever. For many this is the first weekend of the season, and Cyclocross Handbook was at Hardwick Hall, near Chesterfield, for the opening round of the Notts and Derby Cyclocross League. The weather had heard it was the beginning of cross season too, and it rained all night before the race, making an already technical course slippery.

CX Handbook will be at all sorts of cross events throughout the season, from friendly regional leagues, right up to the highest level continental races. If you’d like to see your event covered, give me a shout on Twitter. As always, thanks to to the organisers for a great day. Enjoy, share and follow using the icons below. Thanks!
