If you’ve spent winter rolling in the mud and you’re not quite ready for a return to smooth sportive asphalt, event organiser Southern Sportive has come up with a middle way – the CX Sportive.
The final cyclo-cross sportive of the current series will take place on March 10 in Duncton, West Sussex, with a choice of 40, 60 or 80-kilometre routes, all enjoying the best on and off-road South Downs scenery.
Entry costs £14 for the short route, £16 for the mid route and £17 for the full route. For that you’ll get feed stations, mechanical back-up and all the usual sportive support on course.
Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
