Fibrax  Wrexham Roads Club welcomes the League to Ysgol Bro Alun and Alyn Waters Country Park for Round 4 .  The course is located between the villages of Gwersyllt and Llay and takes in woodland from Alyn Waters Country Park and the playing field of  Ysgol Bro Alun. There’s plenty to challenge competitors. If dry, Alyn Waters will be  fast and free flowing.

Sign-on will take place on the school playing field.

Dogs are not welcome.

Parking. There is ample parking in the School Car Park.  For competitors parking at the roadside: please ensure child safety at all times. Parents are to avoid their children riding until within the safety perimeter of the compound.

(Vets will be classified V40, V50,  V60+ subject to participant numbers )

Parents:  children are made very welcome at cyclocross races. If unsure  don’t be afraid to ask at HQ. The North Wales series prioritises racing for children with most beginners making rapid progress.

Single frameset rule: to limit costs and entry barriers NWCX operates a single frameset rule. You must use the bike you start with. No spare bikes permitted once race underway.

Knobbly tyres rule: cyclocross takes place on grass, mud and gravel surfaces. It is essential for competitor safety that competitors fit knobbly tyres. Riders with smooth tyres will be asked to discontinue. This applies equally to children.

Competitors retain race numbers. Numbers are issued to competitors at their first registration.  Riders are instructed to retain and re-use their  number all season to simplify registration. Please keep your number safe between races. Replacement numbers will be charged  £5 per set.

Return of timing chips. Competitors  hand back their race chips at the finish. Each chip cost NWCX £38+vat.  You will be billed if you fail to return your chip immediately post-race.
