HCC's summertime crits run during the daylight savings period (from 5th Oct to 29th Mar); limited daylight hours at the beginning and end of the period means that the season gets fully underway (e.g. including the Women's Series) on 19th Oct and runs through to 15th Mar 2023.
Race durations and some briefing times change inline with available daylight. See the table below.
We have intermediate sprints for A, B & C grades when possible.
Note: Events may be cancelled if conditions are hazardous due to wet roads or other unforeseen circumstances.
