Cannock Chase Winter Classic 2024

25 February

For 2024 we’re super pleased to welcome back our headline sponsor SCOTT Sports. Scott are the number one brand for XC racing with their sort after Scott Scale and Spark MTB bikes. They support some of the best riders in the world but also understand the importance of supporting grassroots racing.

If you’ve not done one of our “Classic” races before then please read the category descriptions further down the page. Many people generally enter a race category 1 up from what would be more suitable for them. Also if you’re fast and you know that you’re fast then please enter the correct race…. We aim for close racing. Any rider that wins by 2 minutes should be in the category above.

Generally the start of the season for the XC Mountain Bike racers in the Midlands, turnout is always big for this event. Many categories will sell out before Christmas with riders super keen to kick off their race season. The venue can only hold a limited number of competitors so please enter early to avoid any disappointment.

Event Details

Held as before on the popular area of Cannock Chase the event will once again be focused towards the newbie or fun rider. The Classic events have always been about grass routes of mountain biking. Riders from 3 years old to 70 years old. People who ride every day and those who have just started. Everybody with one thing in common and that’s a love for Mountain Biking.

The course is traditional mountain biking with everything from short and sharp climbs, single track descents and fire road blasts. We aim for a course which is 100% ride-able therefore where we have a technical section we will also have an easy route for those who may be not quite so confident. We often get asked what standard you need to be to ride in our events. We would say that if you are up to riding the red route around Cannock Chase then you are at a suitable level. If you aren’t quite at that level yet then you may find sections of our full course too difficult.

At the venue you’ll find camping facilities, fresh water, hard standing parking 100metres from the start and great view points for spectators. We’ll also have caterers and trade stands along.
