Hope Cross Country Race Series 2012: The finale this Sunday 14th October!

The Hope XC series is about to wrap up XC racing in the North West for 2012 with the final edition in the 2012 series. 2012 has been a year of tremendous racing in the quarry and over 250 people have lined up at the start line in the series so far. This is the last opportunity to capitalise on any summer fitness before the dark and the cold set in for the winter and it is lining up to be a great day.

As usual it is a new course design for race 4 with some new "off piste" sections to keep riders on their toes on the main course. The Hope XC Series is designed to allow riders of all standards compete and enjoy themselves so two courses are operated at the same time, the "Have-a-go" course threads its way through the quarry on a smoother less challenging route than the main course where riders are pushed hard on exciting descents mixed in with technical climbs and some cheeky "testing" sections.

It's also the conclusion of the series competitions with the mega prizes from Hope to the winners. As usual there are generous prizes for the day's racing and generally enjoying yourself all courtesy of the sponsors. Hope Technology, Leisure Lakes Bikes, Big Bear Bikes, Cooksons Cycles, DHP 11, The Bike Shack (Haslingden), Rider Coaching, CRUD and BUFF. That is all coupled with one of the best XC racing venues around. Check out the Youtube videolets here to see what it's like.

Not riding? Lee Quarry is a compact site and is great for spectators who can see the racing at many places during the event. As always lots of volunteers are needed on race day if you want to get involved and support these events and the team get in touch via the website.

Race dates: 14th October.
