XCC - Shepherds Hill

Race 2 - 18th February 2024

XCC is a fast paced ‘cross country’ (meaning up and down the hill) MTB race that is designed around a shortened race time and more suitable course design for beginners, meaning it is a friendly introduction to racing for all.

For our more experienced riders, think crit racing of mountain bike, but twisted with spectacular features and exciting sprints for position.
