The Rapha Super Cross series returns in October for another three days of cycling mayhem including the addition of a new ‘Spiral of Doom'.
The snail-shaped obstacle will feature alongside last year's Wall of Foam and Tequila Shortcut in the mud-filled Fun Race.
The event, which starts at Broughton Hall in Skipton on the 19th October, then visits Philip's Park in Manchester on the 20th before finishing a week later at Alexandra Palace in North London on the 27th.
Series Director Ian Cleverly said he was delighted to be able to take the event to Manchester for the first time.
"We're really excited about this one. This park is perfect - right next to the famous velodrome and the home of British Cycling." said Cleverly.
"Phil Braybrooke has come up with a cracking course with a nasty sting in its tail. We are expecting a big crowd for this one and that will be a popular spot for spectators who like to witness suffering."
Belgium beer, waffles and frites will be on offer throughout as well as thousands of cowbells and live music to help the noisy atmosphere.
Entry for spectators is free and there's also the chance to see the Elite race with Hope Factory Racing looking to defend their Rapha Super Cross title after triumphing in 2011 and 2012.
There are races for all ages ranging from an under 10s category up to veterans. Women are part of the Elite race for the first time, which promises to be another exciting finish after Hope's win on count back last year.
Race entry is in advance only and for more information see the race website (opens in new tab).
