I was talking to Richard Shenton about maybe using the school field and having a new course this year. Did my thing come of this?
I am happy to help however, although I would also like to race it. (I will still turn up at 6am withtapeand stakes though

Martin S - thought I'd added to this thread before I went on holiday. I asked the school about the other field and they weren't too keen on us using it because of the Saturday football matches and they were quite clear that the running track is out of bounds. I'm intending to change things round on the main park but not hugely. Going round it tomorrow if you fancyl joining me and Steve at 11am.

The date is coming round soon

I would love to help in any way I can. Would you like me to take photos? I'm no photographer but they're not too bad.

Emma that is great news!
I think Richard Shenton will allocate a roll for you.

We have had a good response from members, 10 including Emma.

After our Cyclocross meeting with Richard Shenton last night we are still in need of four more people to help with setting up the course and marshalling etc.
If you can only help part of the day or the full day that would be fantastic.
It is an early set up at 7:30am completed by 10 am.
Marshalling ranges from 10 am to 3:30pm approx.
The aim is to relieve marshalls hence the call for more helpers.

Russ has said he can help with dismantling at the end as he is riding an audax. We have not put Russ's name down for setting up.

For any Cyclocross riders note you do get awarding points for helping on your event.

Log your interest here and email:
Richard will then provide you with more information.

Thanks once again.

We had a set up and marshal run through this morning at Bramcote Park. It was great to see lots of familiar faces who are helping to set up the course.

With more race categories there is even more courses to join together, so the two hour walk through the park was vital to ensure a speedy set up on the day. I believe Richard Shenton is doing the same again for others next Sunday. Richard's planning of this event is incredibly thorough and I believe it will be another cracking NGCXL event.

It was very interesting to hear people like Martin S say I haven't been along here before etc. The Park has many different twist and turns especially in the woods.

This years course, I think is going to be faster in places and even more technical in others.

Update: Cancelled!

Following an assessment of the conditions at Bramcote Hills Park and considering the weather forecast for the rest of the week Broxtowe Borough Council has informed us that it cannot allow the cyclo-cross event to go ahead this weekend.

Thank you to all those that agreed to help.
