The event is as much as spectating as taking part, with a set of hurdles set up in the event’s beer tent, and last year the event was a sell-out.
Light and bike accessory brand Knog has lined-up a £1,000 prize list. Entry is not restricted to those with cyclo-cross bikes, as there are caetgories for mountain bikes, single speed and fixed too. Probably best not to ride the course on a Di2-equipped Specialized Venge, however.
Entry for spectators is free and alongside the racing will be music, drinks and hot food. More details and an entry form can be found on the Knog Muddy Hell website.
