NWCX League 23/24 Round 2: Mold Leisure Centre Sunday 8th October CH7 1EP
October 8 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
Round 2 of the 2023/24 North Wales Cyclocross League: Mold Leisure Centre
Sunday 8th October 2023
We are the guests of Aura Wales Leisure. This is traditionally an early season race.
This fast flowing course sweeps over playing fields and features two lengthy sections of woodland single track. It is usually a fast paced race but has the potential to be muddy following heavy rain.
Parking instructions: Avoid the Leisure Centre entrance and instead park to the rear of the school buildings where gates will be open for NWCX visitors. Park on the tarmac beneath the grass banking. Competitors are asked not to drive up the access road to Trebeirdd Farm Reclamation Yard as this blocks customer access and generates complaints.
First Registration of Chips and Race Number
Please come early for the first race. Race numbers and chips will be issued at the gymnasium. Riders retain their number for the remainder of the season. For 2022-23 season riders losing their number will be issued a marker pen number.
Race HQ gazebo will be erected on the football field approximately 200metres above the car park. This can be reached by bike or on foot. Most spectators will assemble on the upper playing fields to watch the race start.

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.
