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.
