Provisional Race Calendar
The provisional calendar for the 2022-23 Lincolnshire Cyclo-Cross season is below. We are still working to confirm some venues. We will endeavour to not make any changes to the calendar, other than confirming the venues marked as TBC. In the unfortunate event of a race having to be cancelled we will NOT replace it with anything and not change the calendar around as we have done in previous seasons. We realise this is not helpful for those planning other events outside of the league.

NOTE : Precise locations will be added to this calendar at a later date. They are also given in the rider info pack. We now use “what3words” to indicate the race location as postcodes are often inaccurate. You can download the App or use www.what3words.com
Please note all 2022/23 Races are ONLINE ENTRY ONLY. THIS MUST BE DONE IN ADVANCE WITH THE STRICT CUT OFF BEING 23.59HRS ON THE WEDNESDAY BEFORE RACE DAY. There will be no on the day entry for ANY of the race categories.

The Novice race is new for this season. It is there to encourage Adults and Youths who fancy a go at cyclo-cross racing but who are put off by their lack of experience. You will not be eligible for any points or prizes and it will be held under the British Cycling “go race” rules – this means you do not need a licence and can race on any suitable bike – Cyclo-cross, Gravel or MTB. The race is open to all adults and children aged 12 and over (age on 31st August 2022). You will be permitted to enter a maximum of 5 Novice races in the season, after which we expect you to step up to the full age appropriate race category. This race will be reviewed after every event and you may be asked to move up to your age appropriate race sooner, if we feel your ability warrants it. This is in the interests of safety as per our British Cycling insurance guidelines.
