The Olympic Legacy Park CX (OLPCX) is the final round in the 2018 series. It’s a new venue for this year and includes features of a more CX persuasion and some that utilise the urban landscaping in the area. The Olympic Legacy Park is dedicated to the study and promotion of an active healthy lifestyle.  Due to the open spaces on the course we are able to run a mass start one round format for each category so expect some exciting racing to finish the 2018 series

A Sheffield Urban CX course is an exciting fusion of traditional CX and urban / MTB riding. Sprint sections and of course cobbles. OLPCX includes some amazing landscaping that will make the final round a fitting finale to the series
