Organising clubs needed for 2013 XC NPS races

October 19th, 2012 · No Comments

The Off Road Commission are seeking expressions of interest from clubs seeking to run rounds of the NPS and the National Championships.  They have also released the dates that they suggest for these races with six dates outlined and four to five to be selected.  See below for more.

We are seeking initial “expressions of interest” from offroad clubs who would like to run an XC NPS race or the XC National Championships in 2013!

The NPS series is the most prestigious series in the XC calendar and we would ideally like to see a spread of races throughout the country. The National Championships is the most important single XC race of the season and hopefully we can see another great weekend, as we have over the last number of years!

There are seven proposed dates available but we anticipate that the NPS series will consist of four or five races depending on the number of applications and their geographic spread. The first proposed date is the weekend of April 13th/14th and then the next six alternate weekends!

April 13th/14th

April 27th/28th

May 11th/12th

May 25th/26th

June 8th/9th

June 22nd/23rd

July 6th/7th

July 20st/22nd – National Championships

Could interested clubs please send details and their preferred date by email to offroad.commission@gmail.com.

Many thanks!
