Run and Ride Events, in conjunction with Mayer Active and Malvern Cycle Sport, are pleased to announce the arrival of a new grassroots series to the British XCO scene; promising an 'old school MTB course, social relaxed atmosphere and close exciting racing'.

'The series starts on February 28th with the Cannock Chase Winter Classic. A single event that's been held for the past 3 years it’s often been the first main race of the year for many and always attracts a massive field. Many of the races will be sold out way before the event, such is it’s popularity! From there the series moves south and joins with co promoters “Malvern Cycle Sport” for round 2 and 3 of the series. Round 2 is being held at another classic venue, Eastnor Dear Park near the Malvern's. This venue offers a different kind of course to Cannock but still very much a true MTB course. Then we move over to Birchwood for round 3. The guys at Malvern Cycle Sport promise a real fun tight twisty course that will test all skills levels. For the final round we return back to Cannock for the Summer Classic to finish the whole series of in true style.'
