Holywell Estate a regular Southern XC venue joins the National circuit for 2023
Round 4 re-visits Woody’s Bike Park in Cornwall for the 3rd year in a row. With its multiple A/B lines, it is definitely one for the technical riders!
The much-loved rider favourite Cannock Chase will host the 5th & final round. It always delivers a great course with multiple A-lines & flowy natural off-piste.
For 2023 we head back to Tong for the National Championships, This course will really set the technical riders apart from those who aren’t as comfortable with the multiple hard A-lines. The course will be completely different from Round 1 to keep riders on their toes!
