National Cyclo-Cross series comes to Westport

Sport

 

The first round of the National Cyclo-Cross series takes place this Saturday, November 19 at Westport Country Lodge.
This will be the biggest CycloCross event to be held West of the Shannon in 2022.
CycloCross is an event which takes place on a closed off road circuit and requires participants to cycle or run (with their bike) as quickly as possible around the course. Expect to see cyclists negotiate twists and turns, jumps and technical descents making it a fantastic spectacle for spectators.
The race is held on the grounds of Westport Country Lodge Hotel in Aghagower on Saturday 19th of November.
The course, a 2.5km circuit, is built on the 26 acre Footgolf grounds to the front of the Hotel. Racing starts at 9.50am with an U-6 fun race and senior races off from 12.30.

With every category of rider catered for from U6 to over 60 it's sure to be a great day out for riders, spectators and families.
The course can be viewed from the comfort of Hotel, but to really catch some of the spills and thrills, throw on the boots and get up close and cheer on the participants
Don't forget the #cowbells
