National 'cross champs postponed

Cyclo-Cross News logo

The National cyclo-cross Championships due to take place in Sutton Park, Birmingham, this weekend [January 9-10] have been postponed due to the adverse weather conditions.

Icy roads surrounding Sutton Park have made the whole area unpassable for the lorries needed to transport barriers, gantries and other race infrastructure onto the circuit. With access for competitors, spectators and emergency services also severely affected, the Cyclo-Cross Commission has postponed the event following consultation with Birmingham City Council Safety Advisory Group, event organisers and suppliers of the event services.
