XC racing returns to Cannock with round 1 of the 2011 RRP Midlands XC Series. It's taking place in the Tackeroo block of the Chase on Sunday 20th March. The red and blue waymarked trails will still be open on race day, but there will be marshalled crossing points with the race course, so follow the dog riders will need to be on the lookout for the caution signs.
There is a morning race at 10.30 which comprises the under 18 riders, the over 40 riders and all the female riders. At 13.00 it's the turn of the under 12's to take part in some short course racing, followed by all the senior male (19-39) categories at 14.00.

There'll be lots of bike bling on display in the arena and the course is a cloverleaf shape, making it easy for spectators to see riders several times on each lap.
Chase Trails will be helping marshall and will have our publicity stand up in the arena so come and say hello.
