12th-13th January National Championships CycloPark
February World Championships

Cyclo Cross in the West Midlands is booming due to great clubs and organisers that volunteer to run races for us. The challenge is that courses and infrastructure that was OK a few years ago is now being stretched.  We appreciate that this is a family sport and the attraction of the League for some is that the whole family can participate on the same day at the same venue. We have been getting races in excess of 180 riders and some courses cannot handle that amount of riders safely and so we limit the number of riders who can register for the League.  Race Organisers, WMCCL Committee and Commissaires will decide on race number limits of each race venue before and on the day if conditions dictate. Registered League riders will get priority on race days up to the circuit limit on a first come first served basis.

Non league registered riders are still welcome to sign on the day, subject to available space but will not be eligible for league points.

Sign On Guidelines

WMCC League registered riders get priority entry until 30 minutes before each individual race start when sign on will close.

Sign on crews will sign on and issue to WMCCL registered riders (numbers and) timing chips until the circuit limit is reached or until 30 minutes before race start.

Non registered riders will sign on but not be issued with a number or timing chip if they are in the V50, Women’s, Senior or V40 categories.

At the 30 minute to go cut off, if the circuit limit has not been reached, the sign on crew will issue numbers and chips, in sign on order, to any non-registered riders up to the circuit limit.

If a non-registered rider is unsuccessful in getting a ride, they will then get a refund of the entry fee.

Please play your part and observe our Code of Conduct at all times by agreeing to:

  • Encourage and applaud effort as well as success
