Each Autumn WSJCC runs a round of the West Midlands Cyclo Cross League. These are great family fun events and anyone can enter from the youngest of kids to the oldest of seniors. There are lots of age categories from under 6 upwards and the race is for a set time period for each category- eg 40 minutes for over 50’s. You try to complete as many circuits as you can in the time allowed – so if you’re worried about being the slowest, fear not, as once the finishing bell goes everyone is on their last lap!
The 2024 WSJCC Will be held on a Sunday in October at Lakeside Campus, University of Worcester, Holt, WR6 6NH. To encourage new club riders, WSJCC members new to Cross can reclaim their advance entry fee and BC day licensee fee from the club for our round. To be eligible you must be on the start line to race and be representing the club ie wearing a club shirt. club shirts are available to loan on the day.
For advance on-line entry you will need to set up a RiderHQ account. You can enter other people using that account – useful for families with several riders. The prices for League membership are £5 for those born in 2011 or later, and £10 for everyone else.
Entry on-the-day is a fall back for those who miss the online deadlines £5 / £2 premium. You will also need to enter your British Cycling race licence if you have one, or buy a one day licence for £3 payable at registration (under 16s exempt) – usually in cash. Some events have a parking fee. Usually this is cash as you enter but sometimes it’s payable online in advance as at the WSJCC round.
Registering for the league allows riders to accumulate League points and to appear in WMCCL tables based on their sex and age. It also gives riders aged 12 and above a discount on race entry fee. Register by Visiting the WMCCL website
Dates for the 2024 season will be announced August – They will be most Sundays during September, October and November.
